Kristoffer "Kris" Kristofferson On Saturday, 27 October 2012 members of Wake & District had the honor to participate at the USO of North Carolina 8th Annual Salute to Freedom Gala at the Raleigh Convention Center.  The band had the privilege to kick of the party which was attended by the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff  U.S. Army General Martin E. Dempsey along with actor Kris Kristofferson.  The United Service Organizations of North Carolina (USO-NC), founded 70 years ago in 1941, is the lead organization charged with supporting military servicemen and women in the state of North Carolina; 11% of our military active duty forces call North Carolina home. With 7 major military installations, North Carolina has the 4th largest demographic of active and reserve duty components in the country.

The band is proud to continue to support the North Carolina USO and the good work they do.
