Yet, as we approach the 18th Anniversary it’s essential to remember that thousands of service members, some of whom were in the audience that day, still grapple with PTSD resulting from the war. The concert isn’t just a tribute to their service but also a reminder of the ongoing battles they face daily.

A staggering 44,000 active-duty military personnel and their families graced the event, with the ripples of this concert reaching an impressive 880,000 service members and civilians at bases worldwide, all thanks to the Armed Forces Radio and Television Network. The high-definition concert, captured through the lenses of 12 cameras, was more than a visual treat; it was history in the making.

With powerhouse performances from musical maestros like Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child, Kiss, Ted Nugent, Godsmack, and Darius Rucker with Hootie & The Blowfish, to name a few, the night was electrified with artistry. And the glamour didn’t stop there. The event saw appearances from celebrities such as Mary J. Blige, Cindy Crawford, Randy Jackson, Carmen Electra, Alyssa Milano, and Sharon Stone, further adding to its grandeur.

However, the heartbeat of “Rockin’ the Corps” was (and remains) the mission behind it. Orchestrated by Support The Corps, a non-profit brainchild of Joseph E. Robert, Jr., a businessman from Washington, D.C., the concert was a beacon of gratitude.
