The First-Ever USO Homefront Concert! The USO and Kentucky National Guard has joined forces to produce a Montgomery-Gentry Concert. This concert will honor the families of the troops and volunteers who support them. This is the first-ever "Homefront USO Concert" will be a reverse version of typical USO shows that originate at the location of deployed troops. The concert will be presented live to the family volunteers, home-based soldiers and airmen, Active-Duty, National Guard and Reserve and their families at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville and will be broadcast live to deployed troops around the world via the Pentagon Channel. Supporting the Volunteers Who Support the Mission The concert will show appreciation for the sacrifices and service of our military families and our volunteer force. The volunteers who assist with family support while our troops are deployed play an integral role in supporting the families of soldiers during long tours of duty.

This concert is being held the same week as the National Guard's National Volunteer Workshop and Youth Symposium, which is attended by more than 1,400 Guardsmen and family volunteers.

International Broadcast The concert will be broadcast via the Pentagon Channel to over 32 million homes in the U.S. and over 378 bases worldwide to show troops in theater we are taking care of their families back home. The Pentagon will uplink the program to Armed Forces Network (AFN) for distribution worldwide and even ships at sea.
