Blues Foundation Honored By Troops in Afghanistan!

Steve Simon, the Commander in Chief of Bluzapalooza, the organization that give the Blues to troops around the world, sent this in:

An American flag was flown on an F-15 Strike Eagle jet fighter last week during a combat mission in Afghanistan in honor of The Blues Foundation by the 492nd Fighter Squadron.

Rocky Nelson will bring the flag and the certificate from Afghanistan to Memphis to be presented to the Foundation during the Blues Music Awards.

Nelson is the founder and DJ of the Blues Power Hour radio show on Armed Forces Network's Freedom Radio in Kabul, Afghanistan, and started this Blues radio show for the troops after being inspired by the first Bluzapalooza tour to Iraq this past April.

If you would like to see the certificate that will be presented to the Blues Foundation, please visit our PHOTO GALLERY. It is pretty darn cool!

Thanks, Rocky Nelson, for all you do to give the Blues to those who need them most!
