Cheerleader Mila Blogs From Tour

Posted Sep 17, 2012

Mila tells us all about life on tour in the Middle East

Hellooooo Redskins fans!!

Mila here, writing to you all after another great tour experience in the Middle East. Being an Air Force brat, it always means a lot to me when I get to meet the men and women who continue fight for us. We sometimes hear what goes on during their deployment, but you appreciate what you have at home even more when you see it firsthand. The work that they do in the excruciating heat is inspiring. One of the NFL Alumni on tour with us, Kawika Mitchell (aka Hawaiian Lion), had a saying, "Free love and don't hate"...by the end of the trip he added AIR CONDITIONING!!

The more we were shown around the bases, the more I couldn't wait to perform and hopefully even put a smile on a few faces. The excitement of the crowd makes our jobs a lot easier, but the slience from the audience during our first show made us nervous that we weren't performing our best. Later, we found out from Mark Mosely (aka grandpop), that the service men and women were all so happy to have us there that they were hesitant to get too loud and offend us!  It's nice to know men can still be gentlemen in the middle of duty.

What I enjoyed most about tour other than performing, beating some of the soldiers at Call of Duty, and playing a pick-up game of basketball, were the genuine conversations I shared with many of the troops. I loved sitting down and getting to know the stories and daily lives of many different types of individuals - where they came from, how they got there, where they will end up. I only hope that our company reminded them of home and that they have something to come back to...and to come home safely!

Love,
