Top Top 10 are in the DC area today, in between their Washington DC and Baltimore concerts. Earlier today, they visited soldiers at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
Here are some of their impressions, via twitter:
Kris Allen: @KrisAllen4Real -Just went to the army hospital in DC. Thank you to the people that risk their lives over seas for our country.
Scott MacIntyre: @IdolScott: “Honored to go to meet our troops this morning.. God bless you for your service…At Walter Reed Army Medical Center.. These faithful servants of our country are the true American Idols.
Matt Giraud: @MGiraudOfficial: It was so touching to go see the wounded soldiers gaining back their strength and independence without some of their limbs. I salute them…It really makes you think of your loved ones and be thankful for whatever it is that you have.
Michael Sarver: @michaelsarver1 – So we just visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I am humbled in a way I have never been…I don’t think I will ever feel comfortable with the term “idol” attached to my name again…To all those serving our great country at home and abroad. This phrase seems empty and insufficient but Thank You!!…We just met the true American Idols. We are so blessed to have people like that fighting for the USA and freedom across the world…One man said I was his favorite and all that came to mind was your my favorite. He had no right leg and a tore up arm in a wheelchair…And all he talked about was getting up and walking again. What a man, what a fighter. He is my hero and idol not the other way around.
