I didn't even realize that in the vast list of cable channels there was something called 'The Pentagon Channel'.

During one of their programs, they had the opportunity to interview Trace Adkins before he performed at the Houston Rodeo.

When Trace was asked why he does a lot of performances overseas for the troops, he answered, "You know, I figure I can protect my family within the confines of my own yard.  Outside of that, I need help.  So I try to show my gratitude and respect."

What a great answer.

Check out the entire interview.
