Tritt, Thomas Perform for Warrior Foundation

Travis Tritt and newcomer Keni Thomas will perform when the Special Operations Warrior Foundation honors troops who volunteered to rescue American hostages held in Iran 25 years ago. Eight service members were killed during the secret rescue mission that sought to rescue 53 Americans held by Iranian militants in a heavily guarded embassy compound. Based in Tampa, Fla., the nonprofit foundation provides college education grants to children of special operations personnel killed in training accidents and operational missions. Tritt and Thomas will appear during a commemorative dinner set for April 24 in Fort Walton Beach, Fla.
