4Troops is comprised of veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Former CPT Meredith Melcher served as a platoon leader conducting successful ambulance evacuations of wounded G.I.s and Iraqis. Former SGT Daniel Jenns enlisted after 9-11 and served in Iraq. SSG (Ret.) Ron Henry, a 20-year Army vet, was a transport manager in Iraq with the 101st Airborne Division yet managed to find time to lead Army singing group Transportation Express. Former SGT David Clemo served in Afghanistan where he provided communications and logistics support for the 18th Airborne Corps.

The tour begins Sept. 22 at Idaho’s Coeur d’Alene Resort, plays Lincoln City, Ore., at the Chinook Winds Casino Sept. 25 and Sacramento at Crest Theatre Sept. 28. Other stops include Fresno, Anaheim, Sante Fe, Salt Lake City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Milwaukee, Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and Nashville.

4Troops is promising an interesting mix of songs for each evening’s concert, ranging from established patriotic tunes to numbers such as Toby Keith’s “Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue.”

The group is also giving something back to veterans groups throughout this tour, directing one dollar per ticket from many of its shows to The American Legion, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans Of America, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the USO. The group’s label, Sony, is also helping vets by donating 50 cents from each sale of the group’s album in the U.S. to the organizations.

But it’s not just all albums and concert tickets. 4Troops has a book detailing the group’s story that’s filled with more than 100 color photos. For more information on everything in the 4Troops universe, click here for the group’s website.
