A Night For the Vets

MTV Held a concert for some of our Brave Troops and 50 Cent was one of the many performers. Ludacris and Kid Rock also had some taped performances for the Vet's and their families. Here's a video of Fif performing his new single Live "Get Up". Enjoy.

50 Cent "Get up"-

This is the full story of the Event and details as to why it took place-
-On October 24, at 8 p.m. ET, MTV will air "A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE," an event to mobilize support for the Bill of Rights for American Veterans (BRAVE), a petition organized by MTV and several veterans' organizations.
-The concert will be taped in New York on October 23 in front of an audience of young veterans and their families. It will feature performances by 50 Cent, Ludacris and Saving Abel, as well as taped performances by Kanye West, Kid Rock, Fall Out Boy, Angels and Airwaves, Nelly, Juanes and Taylor Swift. Also making taped appearances will be Beyonce, Will Ferrell, Jennifer Hudson, John Legend and others. MTV's Sway will host, and news packages from CNN and MTV News will air throughout the special.
-BRAVE asks elected officials to provide veterans with better health care, mental-health treatment, job opportunities, housing assistance and compensation for serving longer due to stop-loss orders.

I'm all for that last part of your blog. It's sad to see how many of the war vets have ended up mentally disturbed.

In high school, recruiters would talk high and mighty about joining the service, and do not get me wrong, it is respectful, But, how much do they offer them once these YOUNG men and women have seen what most of us wish we never will in our lifetime?
