STROUDAVARIOUS RECORDS artist DARRYL WORLEY is set to return overseas for the eighth time to perform for UNITED STATES troops as part of the “Stars for Stripes Tour.” The "We've Not Forgotten" tour will take place throughout IRAQ from APRIL 29th-May 3rd. In addition to full band concerts, WORLEY will also be performing acoustic sets at various remote Forward Operating Bases for troops who rarely receive celebrity entertainment.
WORLEY has toured somewhere overseas to support our troops at least once a year since 2002. In recognition of those efforts, he has received awards for his service, including the VFW AMERICANISM AWARD, the USO MERIT HONOR and the U.S. ARMY APPRECIATION AWARD.
WORLEY said: "In some small way, this is just our way to say thanks in honor of their sacrifice, but it could never compare to what these soldiers do for us every day. Seeing their undying allegiance and loyalty to the cause is so inspiring. Those young men and women are so phenomenal and because of what they do, we are all very fortunate to have the lifestyle and freedom that we have."
