Toby Keith Helped a Soldier Check An Item Off His Bucket List.
Over the past decade, Toby Keith has played to more than 182,600 service men and women at upwards of 100 military installations overseas. Seeing the superstar, especially under those circumstances, is bound to have made several dreams come true. Well, Toby helped a soldier stationed at Camp Dwyer in Afghanistan check an item off his bucket list. Seaman Nicholas W. Pfaff had "Meet Toby Keith" at Number 15 on his list . . . and wouldn't you know it, Toby was doing a USO show there. Nicholas had some time on his lunch break so he hit up the concert and then stood in line afterwards for the meet-and-greet. Unfortunately, it was a long line and his lunch break was almost over . . . so he made a move. Nicholas got the attention of an event staff member and handed over his actual bucket list hoping the guy would help a brother out. He did. The list made its way to Toby's staff and that did the trick. Toby put a check mark next to his name on the list . . . and then added an autograph! "I've been a fan of his since I was in high school; his music is different from what we hear all the time. Something in his lyrics really appeals to me," said Seaman Pfaff.
Way to go Toby!
Thank you for giving something to our troops that they will never forget. You gave them happiness in , most cases, a horrible place. From a veteran, THANK YOU TOBY!
Here's a photo of the actual list. Look for "#15. Meet Toby Keith."
