Kellie Pickler celebrated the Christmas holiday in the Middle East where she's visiting with troops and performing on her seventh USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. The singer is joined by her husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs. The couple was set to visit two countries in nine days.
On Christmas Eve (December 24th), Kellie helped USO volunteers deliver hundreds of gifts to 800 service members as part of the 2013 USO Christmas Convoy. Among the items she helped deliver to FOB Lindsey and Simmons were a TV, an Xbox, video games, movies, cameras, cell phones and USO Care Packages.
Kellie's other duties while overseas include a total of five USO shows, visiting a military hospital and spending time with troops at a USO center.
Kellie has tweeted a few pictures of her journey, including one of her fist bumping a soldier while sitting on the back of a helicopter.
