“The Boondock Saints” Head to Middle East on a USO Tour!
“The Boondock Saints” on a USO Tour in the Middle East!
Actors Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus and Brian Mahoney of “The Boondock Saints” are travelling to Middle East on USO Tour! Also along for the ride will be the Film’s Writer/Director Troy Duffy and Producer Chris Brinker.
Cast members of the cult classic film “The Boondock Saints” will spend eight days traveling through three countries for this USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. Along the way they’ll visit troops at military bases, sign autographs, post for photos, and extend their appreciation to the military. This year marks the film’s 10-year anniversary and we’re thrilled to be a part of that! While all five are making the trip to show their support of service men and women, Mahoney shares a special connection with troops, having served ten years in the U.S. Army.
About the USO:
The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform. The original intent of Congress — and enduring style of USO delivery — is to represent the American people by extending a touch of home to the military. The USO currently operates more than 140 centers worldwide, including ten mobile canteens located in the continental United States and overseas. Overseas centers are located in Germany, Italy, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, Qatar, Korea, Afghanistan, Guam and Kuwait. Service members and their families visit USO centers more than 6.9 million times each year. The USO is the way the American public supports the troops.
From bases around the world, our heroes in uniform put their lives on the line every day to protect the freedoms we cherish. Back home, their families deal with the stresses of the uncertainty and risks that their loved ones face every day.
