'I LOVE ROCK 'N' ROLL' Joan Jett performs in Afghanistan for the troops!! more than 15 combat zones!!!
Joan Jett was on hand in the post exchange, signing autographs on CDs, skateboards and other items fans brought, and then posed for photos. Jett is no stranger to military bases as she’s played concerts in more than 15 combat zones in the past few years.

“Shortly after 9-11, I was on the phone to a friend at the Pentagon,” said the raven-haired rocker during a backstage interview. “I said that I wanted to go to Afghanistan and perform for the troops, by mid-October I was over there. It was something I felt I had to do.”

Joan Jett of the 80’s rockgroup sensation, “Joan Jett and the Blackhearts,” sings while wearing a beret given to her by Col. Blair Ross, SETAF Chief of Staff, Vicenza, Italy. Jett and her group, the Blackhearts, played a packed fest tent during Welcome Home celebrations for the Soldiers of the 173d Infantry Brigade (Airborne) who recently returned from Iraq.

Joan Jett of the 80’s rockgroup sensation, “Joan Jett and the Blackhearts,” sings while wearing a beret given to her by Col. Blair Ross, SETAF Chief of Staff, Vicenza, Italy. Jett and her group, the Blackhearts, played a packed fest tent during Welcome Home celebrations for the Soldiers of the 173d Infantry Brigade (Airborne) who recently returned from Iraq. Many of Jett’s USO-sponsored trips overseas to perform for the troops are deliberately kept low-key by the performer.

“It’s between me and the troops,” she said, brown eyes snapping. “Not me and the media. It’s an honor for me to be here. The troops deserve all the support they can get from us … it’s our freedom they’re fighting for!”

Several Sky Soldiers had the opportunity to go backstage and meet privately with Jett before her concert. Among them was Capt. David Gann, 501st Forward Support Company.

“I missed seeing her when she performed in Afghanistan,” said Gann. “I listened to cassettes of her so much I wore them out. I got her to sign a CD for me. It’s great that she’s over here to entertain the troops.”

Jett didn’t let her fans down as she sang and sweated through an hour and a half performance. Saving the best for last, she played her signature song, “I Love Rock ‘n Roll’ and bringing the crowd to their feet and singing along. A couple of songs later, “Crimson and Clover” found the crowd surging toward the stage, swaying to the beat. At the end of her set, SETAF Chief of Staff, Col. Blair Ross, presented Jett with a plaque. Not content with just a plaque, Jett requested—and received—an airborne beret. Before leaving the stage, she told the troops how honored she was to play for them and how proud she was of their service to their country.

Well, there's another entertainer that I used to like, that has gone down the sink-hole of 'entertaining' the fucking troops.

There is a whole pile of used-up-talent-sacks-of-shit that go off to entertain the U.S. hired killers (strangely enough, Americans refer to as their 'best and brightest').

How fucking noble. How fucking absorbing for them. Yack.

Hey, most of these kids signed up for the free college education. Now they're in Afghanistan in the middle of winter subjected to a Joan Jett concert. You should feel nothing but sorry for them.

It's important to support the troops, even if you don't like the war.

It's getting harder to support the troops, when the Gov't won't be truthful about the "real" reasons for going to war, hiding it and covering up all the deaths on both sides, and dead soldiers that come home Annomously in boxes who died for TPTB,while earning money below the minimum wage.And I haven't even got to how they treat the Veterens of these wars.

It is important to support the troops because someday you might need them. It is possible, you know, that we could be invaded.

I'm a Native, and the immigrants still cease to amaze me, you act like you're from here, You've only been here for over 500 years. If you really loved Amrica, you'd love the people that came with it. My people and I were created from the very Earth that you call America, So in that sense we are AMERICA.

OK.

I'll change that.

This country might be invaded AGAIN.

And the invaders might be from another planet.

The idea of Europeans invading the Americas and forcing their values on the people is correct to a point, but let us not forget that 500 years before said invasion, the pagans of Europe were invaded by Roman "christians" who slaughtered hundreds of thousands who would not convert.

The Germans were forced to become Christians. If they followed their "old ways," they were burned at the stake.

This same mentality brought the descendents of the romans (i.e., the Brits) to the Americas where they continued their conquest of the world.

All of those Europeans were victims, just like the Native Americans, of evil powers from Rome.

Oh, damn. I don't even own any of her recordings. Now I have nothing to throw in the fireplace.

Any "artist" that entertains hired killers can suck hot lava. Forever.
