All Veterans. Still Serving Their Country. One Joke At A Time. Their mission and their goal is to help heal their fellow soldiers with their comedy, and to bring laughter to all those who have supported the people that wear the uniform of the United States Armed Forces." You must be 18 years or older to attend the show, but it's certainly one you don't want to miss!
