Lisa was asked to go on tour fronting the California
Girls, and was given
the honor and privilage of entertaining our troops in the middle east.
Here are some additional pictures and letters from the troops.
Also be sure to see the videos from the middle

Helicopter-- we flew in Black Hawks. They left us out
in the middle of nowhere at some of the forward
singing at one of the gigs

Ladies, First off, thank you so much for performing for us here
at Tallil AB/Camp Adder, Iraq. I was at your show and thoroughly
enjoyed it. Truthfully, I didn't know what to expect when I
seen the flyers announcing the show. Boy what a pleasant surprise
you turned out to be! The music was great and the performance
even better. Being one of the "older generation" soldiers
I really appreciated the musical choices - my personal favorites
being Hotel California and Sweet Home Alabama. Watching you
play to the crowd was thoroughly enjoyable. You went out of
your way to make them a part of the show.
After touring your website a bit I realized you ladies have
put a great deal into supporting the armed forces all over the
world. You are to be commended for your continued support. I
know it makes a difference to all the troops here that you took
the time to perform here. It is truly nice to know that there
are ladies like yourselves who go that extra mile to provide
a little Morale booster for us.
LOL, of course there is a catch here. You mentioned something
about running out of cds in Afghanistan and if we visited the
website you would see about sending us one if we asked, so here
I am asking!
Thank you so much for making the trip here. We are here because
we are needed. You came because you care. It says a great deal
about you all. All of us from Company A who attended the show
enjoyed it. So once again Barb, Lisa, Sandy and Max - thank
you. You are the best!
Best wishes and stay safe Ladies.

Thank you for performing for us, it was awesome to say the least
and a personal thanks for me for coming over here to perform
for the troops, they are a hard working, caring, a patriot group
of folks that want nothing more than to be home with there loved
ones, but not until the mission is done. I attached the photo
of Lisa and I, I am rather fond of that photo.
and Sandy showin' off
Saddams head-- This is the actual
statue that came
down at the fall of Saddam's reign as dictator...we
beat it up with our shoes
really enjoyed you ladies in concert last night. I look forward
to seeing you guys sometime in concert back in the old USA.
You guys are the talk of Kuwait, it seemed that all of you touched
the hearts of everyone here, at least the male hearts.
so nice of you guys to make it out to the front lines to see
the troops, even when you guys are leaving so much at your homes
You from the bottom of our hearts
