Rock icon Stevie Nicks has devoted countless hours visiting and helping wounded warriors and their families heal—both physically and emotionally.
“I am more proud of this than Fleetwood Mac or any of the other things I’ve done,” she said.
Nicks, the Grammy-award winning singer and star of Fleetwood Mac, was in the Washington area Tuesday, receiving an award for her profound and passionate work with the USO.
“Doing this gives me something that the rest of my world does not give me and could not possibly give me,” she said.
Nicks hopes others can someday read the numerous stories of the soldiers she’s encountered, and her devotion to helping these veterans and their families is a feeling she doesn’t expect to fade any time soon.
“I have to always come back here,” she said.
