Leaving Kwaj- heading home

On our way to the show in Kwaj Style!

This place is a living Post Card- I will miss it allot!
These skies during sunrise where so amazing

I woke up after the show around 4AM to watch the sun come up- I recapped the 10 days in my head- I can't believe it was real. I love our troops and would and have gone to war zones to entertain them... but to go to places like this, with all its history is icing on the Cake. I love my job and doing it for such wonderful people, meeting friends and so on but I am ready to get home and see my little man.

I thank Armed Forces Entertainment, Frank, Max and Carol & Jim for allowing me these Opportunity's 
 A storm was blowing over- I hope we don't get delayed, I want to see the baby but I also love the idea of staying here another night.

Back to Hawaii

 We stop and have lunch in Hawaii Then I'm off to Chicago- layover and Home! I thank god every trip and for meeting so many great people!
I make great friends on these trips and meet people i will always be in touch with.... this trip no different.
Finally getting to talk to Angie made me so happy. Glad to be heading home.

Here are some Random shots taken right before our show at American Legion.
The crowd was amazing and we got to hang out with the guys after and watch the stars. Amazing!!

Jim tearing it up!

I reunited with my buddy Stan from the last blog! Him and his wife are great people- I am excited we exchanged info and are going to stay in touch!
We watched the stars after the show and enjoyed relaxing on the beach.

flying to kwaj. part 1

Leaving Hawaii: Last  night in Paradise.

Heading To Kwaj- Check older blog for history

This was such an important Atoll in WW2 I can't believe I'm coming back to perform for our guys there- I know its selfish but WW2 is so important I love the fact I've seen this place.
I am ultra excited to perform for our troops and see where such important historical things happened.
Please for history and a tour check my blog history.

Hipsters in Kwaj?

Carole, Midori, Liz, Jim, Me and Frank

Island living is amazing- if you are American. The Native people live tough. they start having children at 12 years old and on these tiny island a baby is born about every 6 hours and only half make it past 1 years old.

These sharks come in and eat the scraps from the fish that get caught and gutted. We only have about 24 hours and only 1 show tonight- we fly out  early- so I tried to fit in as much sight seeing as i could.

Frank Jim and I check out what we can historically on the island then hit the beach.

Where 3 marines where executed by the Japanese

After we ran around It was time to get ready for the show at the VFW hall on sight. Its a different venue from last time but I am still excited and nervous for the show. I get nervous because I want to give these guys the best show possible- its very important to do my best- the troops deserve it!
