Tribute To The Troops was founded by U.S. Army Veteran, singer-songwriter-philanthropist, Rockie Lynne, in 2004 with a mission to bring comfort to the families of fallen soldiers and to honor their sacrifices.

“For 18 years, Tribute To The Troops has been paying tribute to the families of our fallen," said Lynne. "We are excited to be able to honor the family of Gunnery Sgt Michael Scott McQueeney at this event. We know that the fans of Progressive AFT are true patriots and will enjoy being part of honoring this American hero’s family.”
