Atlantic recording artist Kid Rock has announced he?s going to the Middle East to spend Christmas with the troops. The Detroit Cowboy will once again visit U.S. military personnel stationed in the Middle East, with an itinerary that sees him spending the upcoming holiday season alongside troops currently serving in both Kuwait and Iraq. The trip is sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment and America Supports You.
"This year for Christmas I wanted to make sure somebody was thanking our troops for their service, no matter what our views are on the current situation in Iraq. I would be spending Christmas with my family, but in my heart I know this is the right thing to do - not only for our men and women in service, but also to set an example for my son and send a strong message to the world to be thankful and think of others at Christmas time."
