USO to Put on Concert for Third ID

They're saying thank you to the troops with a special concert with a country and western flavor. The USO is holding a welcome home event for the Third Infantry Division March 25. That show will be headlined by country star Cheley Wright.

Today the Chatham County Commission gave the USO $7,500 to help the cause.

Organizers say the concert will be a great way to say thanks. "It's going to be a family day, for all the hard work they've done on behalf of the country, giving freedom and liberty to Iraqis," said the USO's Ray Gaster. "I think they well deserve this."

The event will be held at Fort Stewart and is for Third ID soldiers and their families only. More acts should be added to the bill in the next few weeks.
