MCCS efforts to bring free entertainment to the service members aboard the air station is continual, said Fossum.
“I think we are going to have a good turnout,” said Fossum. “We have given away a lot of tickets already.”
The concert highlights the relationship between the air station and local community.

“I was at Cherry Point last year for the air show, and I got to open for Darryl Worley, who is a famous country singer,” he said. “This will be my second time performing at Cherry Point.”
Kroll says coming to North Carolina and performing for the military is an amazing experience that he will never forget.
“Getting to play my song for a bunch of Marines and their families is something that to this day I will never forget,” he said.
