Today, more than ever, is a good day to pay tribute our military service personnel stationed far from home and often involved in activities that demand exceptional courage, leadership and self-sacrifice.
The fashion and lingerie worlds seem far removed from today’s headlines — until we remember how a little bit of pinup girl peek-a-boo courtesy of the USO can brighten the day for men and women serving in dismal, hostile lands far removed from their loved ones and the comforts of home.
These shots are from VH1’s entertaining Divas Salute the Troops show that was broadcast in December. The pinup posters featuring Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Grace Potter, Keri Hilson, Jennifer Nettles and Hayley Williams are no doubt decorating the walls of many barracks in Irag, Aghanistan and elsewhere today.
If you missed that show, it’s well worth checking out the photos on the VH1 site. And a bonus: VH1 donated $1 to the Operation Enduring Care verterans’ support program for every photo shared by viewers after the broadcast.
