This is a documentary everyone should watch
13 October 2012 | by grafxmanSee all my reviews

The actor, Gary Sinese, forms a band and takes it on the road to entertain the troops. Sounds simple, sounds boring doesn't it? Well, it's anything but! The documentary covers how Gary Sinese started up the band, how he "collected" the musicians and singers, and how the USO came into play.

It's a fascinating look at his life as well as the lives of the artists. Many parts of it are very surprising. They don't just entertain the troops overseas. They also go to the bases here in the USA. They entertain the children of the troops. One of the singers wrote a very moving tribute song to the men and women in the military. There are many interesting interviews with the troops, the entertainers, USO personnel, etc. No one should miss the chance to watch this wonderful documentary.
