No matter what your personal opinion of The Boondock Saints or Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day might be, you can’t help but love and respect something like this.
USO shows are a staple in entertaining and bringing smiles to the faces of our military’s troops as they serve our country, and countless stars and celebrities have made their way to these shows over the years to do their best to keep spirits and morale as high as possible during tough times.
Now, stars of the two Saints films, Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus (who spoke to us a while back about Boondock II among other things), as well as Brian Mahoney, director Troy Duffy, and producer Chris Brinker are heading off on their own trip. Their destination: the Middle East, where they will take part in one of these USO entertainment tours, allowing them to meet many of our country’s soldiers, sign autographs, and take pictures with those who risk their lives to defend our nation.
Whether you support the war and our occupation of these countries or loathe it passionately…this news isn’t about the politics, it’s about the troops. Celebrities going over there to give these men and women one of the few good days they’ll see in their time serving can mean the world to them, and it’s great to see the Boondock Saints crew taking the time to go and show their support.
