The majority of us will never get to thank U.S. troops by performing shows for them in Iraq and Afghanistan on a USO tour like Kellie Pickler does, but she reminds her fans there is something you can do to make servicemen and women feel appreciated. Kellie makes a point to go up and thank military personnel wherever she may run into them.

"It’s neat to go up to them and say, ‘Hey, I noticed your hat, thank you for your service,'" Kellie tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal . "You would not believe the light that comes on in their eyes, like, ‘Thank you for saying something. I thought people forgot.'"

She adds, “They need to know we have their back. They’ve got ours.”
