“We are thrilled to welcome WWE for their 15th annual Tribute to the Troops celebration continuing what has become a great tradition during the holiday season,” said San Diego Naval Base Commanding Officer, Charles Womack. “The servicemen and women of San Diego could not be more excited, and look forward to participating in this inspirational event.”
“It is a privilege to honor our servicemen and women for their commitment and sacrifice to our nation,” said WWE Chairman & CEO Vince McMahon. “Tribute to the Troops is our most meaningful show of the year and we are proud to continue the tradition at Naval Base San Diego.”
WWE began tribute of the army in 2003 as a means to honor the army and women and their families. And this year it is considered to be the most patriotic and heartwarming show on TV. In the Bob Hope tradition, WWE gathers the highest peaks of sports, entertainment and pop culture, and is performing from popular acts of celebrities and popular acts of music.
While in San Diego, WWE Superstars spend time returning to soldiers and their families. Activities include hospital visits and military outreach activities at various facilities including STAR (R) bullying prevention conferences, naval base San Diego, naval air base North Island, San Diego Naval Medical Center.
