Troops Called to Hank III Concert !!!
I always knew that at some point a Hank III show would get so out of hand that they’d have to call in the big guns to restore order. But fortunately when military might showed up to his concert at the Meridian in Houston on 3/13/10, it was to honor Hank for honoring the troops, not bringing a halt to a hellbilly riot.
Hank’s Houston show was a benefit for the organization Homes For Our Troops. This is the second HFOT benefit Hank has done; the last one was at The Cannery Ballroom in Nashville. This time a full Marine color guard was called in and John Gonsalves, President and Founder of HFOT, read a letter from Texas US Senator John Cornyn thanking Hank III and Col. Jeff Ragland presented him with a military uniform. HFOT builds special homes for military personnel injured in combat. Injured veteran Lotseen Vincent was at the ceremony as well.
Luckily “Evil,” a member of III’s crew was rolling to capture this event:

HFOT is a great cause and Senator Cornyn’s recognition proves that despite political differences and such, the future and well being of our troops is important and III’s generosity is and was noted. What an honor for Shelton ! Always, always always support the armed forces who are fighting for you and me !

I put this on Facebook but I think it needs to be posted here as well! I want to thank My Hellbilly Family for supporting me through thick and thin. Now I want to thank III for doing this for the second time. Showing his support to the Soldiers, Marines, and Airmen only lets us know someone still cares. The first time he participated I knew the Soldier he donated to it almost made me WALT the Tearful. Much Respects Shelton and I will be flying to see yall where ever before I go.
