NASHVILLE, TN Friday Jun.16.2006 / -- During wartime, people forget that American soldiers serve in thousands of other places around the world other than in combat zones.

And catching a little taste of home from a celebrity visit means a lot to them, too.

Like the visits Lee Ann Womack is currently making to bases in Italy and Germany on a Stars and Stripes tour.

Nonetheless Lee Ann was able to meet some combat soldiers when she visited Landstuhl Medical center where many combat wounded soldiers are sent for treatment. Said Lee Ann, "It's not every day you wake up knowing ahead of time it's gonna be one of the greatest days of your life. It was my honor at Landstuhl this morning to shake the hands of American soldiers and Marines, look them in the eye and personally thank them for what they've done for my family."
