GAC Honors Troops This Weekend
May 23, 2007 at 7:55 AM (PT)
GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY (GAC) will once again celebrate MEMORIAL DAY weekend with "Great American Dedications." The weekend-long salute to the troops will be hosted by Country stars NEAL McCOY, TRACY BYRD, CLINT BLACK, JAMIEO'NEAL and GAC personality NAN KELLEY.
KELLEY recently headed out to SAN DIEGO to visit with the men and women stationed at the numerous U.S. NAVY bases in the area. While there she toured the USS HELENA and the USS RONALD REAGAN and spent time on the flight line of the HSM-41 SEAHAWKS HELICOPTER MARITIME STRIKE SQUADRON. She then joined up with McCOY and the pair hit CAMP PENDLETON to visit with the 11th MARINE EXPEDITIONARY UNIT and gather requests and dedications from the soldiers.
In addition to the stateside requests and dedications and the footage filmed at the SAN DIEGO area bases, the special will feature the dedications of US service members in IRAQ that was filmed earlier this spring. The show will air throughout the day on SATURDAY, MAY 26 and SUNDAY, MAY 27 and all day on MONDAY, MAY 28 beginning at 10a (ET). Visit www.GACTV.com.
