Beyonce Concert To Honor Returning Fort Carson Soldiers

Nice to see a performing artist honor rather than attack our troops:
Pop superstar Beyonce will honor five Fort Carson soldiers for their Iraq service during her concert tonight at the Pepsi Center.

The 25-year-old singer's recognition of the soldiers is part of the Army's Operation Tribute to Freedom program, which honors returning soldiers for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Among the soldiers to be singled out at "The Beyonce Experience" concert before a crowd of more than 19,000 people will be Spc. Maurice Boozer. He served in Iraq with the 59th Quartermaster Company, ensuring units had fuel to keep vital equipment and vehicles running.

Boozer and his unit were credited with pumping more than 10 billion gallons of flammable fuel to combat units — treacherous duty in a war zone fraught with suicide bombers and hidden roadside explosives.
