NASHVILLE, TN Wednesday Jun.27.2007 / -- Josh Gracin finished his service to the Marine Corps before he was ever deployed to the Persian Gulf.

But, Josh is headed there anyway, packing a guitar instead of an M-16, taking aim on lifting their spirits for a little while. Gracin will leave his wife and three children at home in Nashville to play shows and spend time with the troops stationed throughout the Persian Gulf. The overseas tour is sponsored by MWR and Stars For Stripes.

"It means a lot to me to do this," said Gracin. "As a former Marine it's important for me to give back to our men and women in uniform. I hope these shows can help them to escape for just a moment and bring a little piece of home to our folks serving overseas."
