    Default How Sweet Is This?

    Just heard about this a few minutes ago. Read:

    "KISS along with Cedric the Entertainer (Master of Ceremonies), Destiny's Child, GODSMACK, Jay Mohr, Louis Anderson and Ted Nugent have been confirmed for a April 1 performance at the Marine Corps Air Station, Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, California.

    Rockin' the Corps is a patriotic celebratory concert for an audience of more than 25,000 Marines and their families. Executive producers Quincy Jones and Joseph E. Robert, Jr. have joined forces with Producers Doc McGhee and Spencer Proffer to create a high energy, patriotic celebration for the dedicated men & women of the United States Marine Corps in a show of appreciation.

    More information is available at http://www.supportthecorps.com/homepage.htm

    NOTE: THIS CONCERT IS FOR THE MARINES AT CAMP PENDLETON AND THEIR FAMILIES.... THERE WILL BE NO CIVILIANS ALLOWED!"

    I had NO idea this was happening. All the tickets were F-R-E-E! Had I known, I would've taken the day off work!

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!

    Yeah, same here. But, actual tickets were given away on base to the military and their families. There's a site with links to numerous press releases, etc.

    For someone to got that far, complete with everything I've seen, I don't think they'd want to be on the receiving end of a pissed off command once it's revealed it's an April Fool's Day joke.

    If it is, though, it's one of the most elaborate I've ever seen. I highly doubt it, though.

    So much for this being an April Fool's Day joke:

    http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniont...m2concert.html

    Free show Rocks Troops to the Corps

    Marines, sailors saluted for Iraq, Afghanistan tours

    April 2, 2005

    CAMP PENDLETON "Rockin' the Corps" was billed as a star-studded,
    patriotic event to thank 55,000 Marines and sailors whose San Diego
    units have suffered the highest casualty rates in Iraq and
    Afghanistan.


    But with the outdoor concert being broadcast to U.S. military
    installations worldwide, it felt more like a celebration of courage
    and perseverance.

    Former NBA all-star Karl Malone kicked off the evening by donating
    $100,000 to the Marine Corps. Then longtime rocker Ted Nugent
    played "The Star-Spangled Banner" a la Jimi Hendrix as some Marines
    stood at attention.

    Throughout the night, many in the crowd described the free show as a
    major morale-booster for the troops.

    "Finally, somebody appreciates what we do," said Lance Cpl. Marcus
    Rodriguez, 20, of the 3rd Amphibious Assault Battalion.

    That sentiment was echoed by Gunnery Sgt. Les Timmons, a 14-year
    veteran of the Marine Corps who came with his wife, Tracy.

    "We have 18-and 19-year-old kids who have aged 10 years in six months
    (of deployment). Now they get home and they don't see all the people
    supporting them. This is like all the appreciation they need in one
    event," Timmons said.

    Around him, the audience shouted cheers as each celebrity appeared on
    the 300-foot stage. It was a festive atmosphere, with beach balls
    bouncing everywhere, Frisbees being tossed around and people singing
    along to their favorite tunes.

    Performers included the pop-music groups Destiny's Child and Hootie &
    the Blowfish, heavy-metal band Godsmack, rapper Ja Rule and vintage
    rock ensemble Kiss.


    Making guest appearances were Sharon Stone, Marisa Tomei, Cindy
    Crawford, Mary J. Blige, Heather Locklear, Richie Sambora, Michelle
    Rodriguez, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jennie Garth, Frankie J. and Randy
    Jackson, a judge on "American Idol."

    Producers Quincy Jones, Joseph E. Robert Jr., Doc McGhee and Spencer
    Proffer organized the concert.

    Robert, whose son is a Marine serving in Iraq, and Jones were the
    driving forces behind what's believed to be the largest event to
    honor veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

    Robert and Jones first discussed doing something for the service
    members about 18 months ago, shortly after they returned from a
    goodwill trip to Baghdad.

    The idea for a concert at Camp Pendleton crystallized during a
    conversation Robert had with Marine Commandant Gen. Michael Hagee in
    August.

    "Gen. Hagee said that Marines and sailors from Camp Pendleton had
    suffered the most casualties of any military base in the country,"
    Robert said. "That's when Quincy and I said let's do this."

    Since 2001, about 40,000 Camp Pendleton troops have served in Iraq
    and Afghanistan. At least 248 of them have died and thousands more
    have been wounded.

    Robert said he knew nothing about the military until his son joined
    the Marines about 2 years ago. He describes the boot camp graduation
    he attended at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego as one of the
    most moving and patriotic ceremonies he's ever seen.

    His son, Cpl. Joe Robert III, 24, is based in Okinawa, Japan.

    "He's disappointed that he won't be able to see the show. But I hope
    he'll be able to hear it," said Robert, a businessman from
    Washington, D.C., who has raised millions of dollars for charities.

    "What will make this a success is if 40,000 Marines and sailors walk
    out of the show high-fiving each other saying this was the greatest
    show they ever saw," Robert said.

    People not invited to the concert will have plenty of chances to
    experience it later on. The performance was filmed for a pay-per-view
    cable channel. The show also might be screened at theaters
    nationwide, and it will be released on DVD.

    Proceeds from these ventures, which Robert said could run into the
    millions of dollars, will go to a fund to support troops and their
    families.
