On The Ground - WWE Crew In Afghanistan
Hey guys, it's subscriber and friendly American Forces Network reporter Petty Officer Dustin Diaz.
They got in yesterday and did a meet and greet, which I didn't attend, then today, they went to some forward operating bases in the area to meet troops. By tonight's event, they were all clearly pretty run-down from the travel and pace.
Right before dinner, where I met up with their group, Kandahar was hit with a rocket attack. Once the all-clear went off, I met them at the dining facility, then we went to the USO. I interviewed all four of them for the story I am doing and they all had great things to say, especially Big Show, who got very emotional when talking about what visiting deployed troops means to him.
Then they spent a good hour meeting a lot of excited troops from every branch, taking pictures and shaking hands with everybody. Vince in particular was very engaged and happy to meet everyone. Anyway the event was a big hit; if you want, I can send you a link to my story when it gets online on Monday.
