Arlington, VA (PRWEB) December 27, 2012
True to their long history of supporting troops and military families the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders (DCC) recently set out on their 75th USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour and are busy spreading holiday cheer to troops in the Middle East. Among the most traveled of USO tour veterans, the DCC have traveled to more than 200 locations since their first USO tour in 1979, lifting the spirits and delivering a touch of home to countless troops and military families around the world.
Attributed to Sloan Gibson:
“The USO and the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders have been delivering life-changing experiences to troops and military families for more than 30 years. We are both proud and thankful for the DCC’s continued commitment to supporting our troops and their families. This 75th tour is a momentous occasion in USO history and we couldn’t be happier about sharing this milestone with an organization like the DCC.”
Attributed to Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Cassie Trammell:
“We’ve seen so many service men and women so far and it’s been a blast. We are so grateful for the opportunity to extend America’s thanks to our troops during this holiday season, a time when they miss their families and comforts of home the most. Being able to distract them, even for just a little while, from what they are missing back home is such an honor for all of us. ”
