A singing group made up of former soldiers raising awareness about the sacrifices troops are making in Iraq and Afghanistan is coming to area as part of Clovis Community College’s Cultural Arts Series.

According to Wikipedia, 4TROOPS focuses on patriotic songs, often with special relationship to their life and service in the military.

According to a CCC press release:

• During the time they spent overseas, music played a crucial and personal role in all of their lives.

• Audiences could range anywhere from their bunk mates, who would gladly hear the sounds of home after a long tedious day on the field, to large military gatherings.

• During somber occasions and memorial services the groups voices brought comfort to the families and friends who lost loved ones to war, the release said.
