|USA Patriotism! proudly recognizes . . . patriot Ted Nugent for his ongoing support of our troops through his performances and other charitable patriotic efforts.|
With over 30 million albums sold, Ted Nugent has not only earned his status as an American music icon . . . he has used it to bring smiles, enjoyment, and a helping hand to our valiant, proud troops in performance tours in association with the USO and other organizations.
Ted Nugent and his wife, Shemane, also founded the Freedom's Angels Foundation to support our brave troops. In Ted's own words...
"As the Nugent family spent more time with US hero soldiers who have sacrificed so much, yet remained in need of special attention and specialized medical and rehabilitation equipment, we were compelled to show our appreciation and gather support for these great warriors for freedom . . . The Freedom's Angels charity was formed to bring relief, joy and a heartfelt salute to those most deserving."
Here are just a few things Ted Nugent has done for the troops...
- Donated in excess of 2,000 tickets and backstage passes to the military, 2005-2006.
- Performed for 55,000 Marines, Sailors and their families at Camp Pendleton's Rockin' the Corps on April 1, 2005, along with fellow musicians Destiny's Child, Godsmack, Kiss, and more. The Performance was also shown as a Big Screen Concert Event in 74 Markets Nationwide.
- In 2004, participated in a USO Tour of the Persian Gulf with Toby Keith, and toured with Keith in The Big Throwdown Tour, 2005.
Ted's humanitarian and patriotic efforts has earned him numerous commendations from state police, sheriff departments, FBI and police agencies nationwide . . . and he has been lauded for his Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids, his work as a national spokesman for D.A.R.E, and for his work with the U.S. Military.
Ted Nugent is also an avid supporter of the USO and encourages other stars to do the same. In Ted's own words again...
"It's surprising how little you hear about the USO back in the States . . . especially, when you consider that it's such an awesome, compassionate, generous and positive force . . . What Bob Hope did during World War II, and the Korean War, and Vietnam, and what Robin Williams and Kid Rock and Toby Keith are doing . . . I'm moved to be a part of that."
