“A special thanks to my friend Lee Greenwood. I’ve heard you perform many times and it gives me chills whenever you sing ‘God Bless the U.S.A.’”
—Former Pres. George Bush
“I’ve been an admirer of Lee Greenwood’s talents for many years. However, not until he accompanied me on my last U.S.O. tour did I really become aware of the impact this man and his song ‘God Bless the U.S.A.’ has on not just the military personnel, but Americans of all ages. Lee Greenwood’s performance is as dynamic as I’ve ever witnessed.”
“We had the chaplain say a little prayer for the protection of our service men and women and then we played Lee Greenwood’s ‘God Bless the U.S.A.’. . . Anybody who knows me knows I love that song. . . . Then we just said, ‘Okay, now let’s go to work.’”
—General Norman Schwarzkopf
