Friend of The Corps - Toby Keith - Dead at 62

Toby was a big friend of the U.S. Military, with Songs like “American Soldier“, “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)“, and “Call a Marine“. He was also an avid USO supporter who performed for more than 250,000 troops, in 17 countries over 20 years.

Welcome to the Average Joe Weekly blog. This is basically my place on the web where I can help spread some of the knowledge that I have accumulated over the years. I served 10+ years in the Marine Corps on Active Duty, but that was some 25 years ago.
