Being forward deployed means a few things — plenty time on post, patrolling through dangerous terrain and a whole lot of downtime to entertain yourself.
Let's face it, life on a FOB is far from glamorous and music is king when it comes to entertainment during regular working hours – which is every day. Having fun in a war zone is an absolute must whenever and where ever you can fit it in.
Listening to the same song over and over again — even the hardest of the hard — will tap their feet, start lip syncing and some will eventually come up with their original dance moves. It's time to break out the camera!
With the ability to film and edit all sorts of footage while manning a combat post within every trooper's reach, making an epic music video nowadays should be a must on a deployment checklist.
So check out these epic military music videos by your deployed military. We salute you for boosting morale!
