Toby Keith Is Home Again

Toby Keith returned home from his ninth USO tour last week after playing for 18 thousand troops in the Middle East during the 12-day run. Toby got to help the servicemen and women celebrate the death of Osama bin Laden May 1st.

Toby's trek included 11 different military installations in Kuwait, Bahrain and Iraq.

He and his crew actually had to take cover at Camp Liberty in Baghdad when an insurgent missile struck about a third of a mile from the stage where they were about to perform.

A similar incident happened at a forward operating base when four mortars struck when Toby was about to take the stage.

Toby's tour also included stops on two ships at sea.
