For the past 70 years, The United Service Organization (USO) has been sending singers, actors and entertainers around the world to perform for US forces stationed in harm's way.

Following in the footsteps of legends like Bob Hope and Humphrey Bogart, country music star Toby Keith is among those giving his time and talent to the cause today.

In this First Person account, Keith talks about his experiences in some of the world's most dangerous places and what motivates him to keep going back.
