Rick Springfield – Christmas With You

December 18, 2007 at 10:09 pm Leave a comment

Tonight we welcomed, Caroline, Lindsay, and Jamie the USO Girls from the DFW Airport.

To learn how you can volunteer too at your local USO visit www.uso.org.

From the USO Girls blog

Saturday while we were working at the USO center, a gentleman came in who had his ipod out. He tapped me on the shoulder and said, “Here watch this. My son is in this video on picture #13”

Not knowing what in the world he was talking about, I put the headphones. Well after about 2 seconds into the video I realized what it was for and boy was it a moving experience. This man’s son Nathaniel was KIA 3 years ago in Iraq and Rick Springfield used three different photos of him in the video.

You could see the pride in this dad’s eyes. He showed that video to every volunteer working in the USO center that afternoon, and we all thought the same thing; Rick Springfield, I love the song Jesse’s girl…but this…THIS…makes you one of the all time greatest artists of all time. The song is beautiful and wonderful, but the pride and happiness that gives to the families is what makes you truly awesome in my book.

*Sidenote: I believe that the proceeds of his Christmas CD are going to support Gold Star Mothers. Woo Hoo! Way to talk the talk AND walk the walk!

Thank you Rick Springfield for your support of military families and honoring their ultimate sacrifice.
