When I worked at the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center, one of the highlights of my day was talking with the veterans and hearing their stories of things they'd seen. Some of it was sad, but a lot of it was funny. Some of the veterans are taking their funny stories on the road: The GI's of Comedy.

The GI's of Comedy will perform at the Bama Theater on Friday, August 28. General admission tickets are only $6.50, and admission is free for those age 12 and under.  According to Brown Paper Tickets, the GIs of Comedy is a comedic troupe of troops, who have taken their love of their country and brought it to the comedy stage. Their mission and their goal is to help heal their fellow soldiers with their comedy, and to bring laughter to all those who have supported the people that wear the uniform of the United States Armed Forces.
