Craig Morgan, Mark Wills and Keni Thomas will travel to the Persian Gulf this month as part of the USO Hope and Freedom Tour 2005. Other participants include Al Franken, the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and the U.S. Army Band. "I am honored to be going back to bring a little bit of home to our troops," said Wills. "I've had the opportunity of visiting with them in the past, and I'm thrilled to be invited back this year. It's hard to be away from your loved ones, and if I can help make their time away a little easier for while, I'm happy to do that."
