Deployed Barksdale Airmen to Receive Star-Studded Christmas Visit
Some big names will be visiting our men and women serving overseas this month.
This Christmas, take a moment to say a prayer for our men and women in uniform who will not be home. We have a long list of men and women from Barksdale Air Force Base in Shreveport-Bossier who will be deployed through the holiday season. It's not easy for the family and loved ones they left behind, but it's certainly not easy for them either. Imagine being in a foreign country, staying in an unfamiliar place on a day that is intended for you to be home.
Luckily, we have some celebrities who will be visiting our airmen.
This year, the USO has put together a little get together for our men and women stationed in Qatar. There have been flyers places throughout the base out there advertising for the "Holiday Visit."
On December 6, they will be visited by:
Chris Evans - Actor (most recently known for playing Captain America in the Avengers)
Scarlett Johansson - Actress (most recently known for playing Black Widow in the Avengers)
Ray Allen - Former NBA All Star (most known for his time with the Celtics)
Craig Campbell - Country music superstar
Maya DiRado - US Swimmer and 4-time Olympic Gold Medalist
Jim Karol - Mentalist and Entertainer
These celebrities will be making a trip overseas to spend quality time with those who have so selflessly sacrificed time with their family to defend our freedom. God bless our men and women in uniform!
