Darius back from international USO tour to the Middle East
Just got back from a USO tour of Iraq and Kuwait with Everlast. We played for the troops on a number of bases for about 10 days; It was an incredible experience!
And yes, it was hotter than hades on earth. 136 F with 90% humidity in Camp Bucca, southeast Iraq, next to Iran and the Gulf. We flew in Blackhawks and C130s, and drove M-RAPS and M1 tanks, but the best part was meeting hundreds of servicemen and servicewomen and just shooting the breeze after the shows.
Check out some promo pics we took for the synth company Nord..
It was hot and dusty and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
