If you don’t know the story of the Air Force Band Sidewinder and Angie Johnson doing a song by Adele that went viral then you are missing a great story.

These little concerts help keep up the morale of our soldiers almost as much as mail from home. They do an excellent job and we commend them on all their hard work. It is just a shame that they have to do it. Continue reading “Don’t Stop Believing”
