Jessica Supports Our Troops!

Jessica Simpson visits sailors and marines before deployment

And that's a good thing!

Jessica Simpson visited the USS Harry S. Truman on Friday as the ship deployed in supporting Operation Enduring Freedom.

The service men and women got the change to get her autograph, have a meal with her and a perform for her. Although Jessica sang as well, the Sailors and Marine competed for the chance to perform a duet with her at the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting in November.

Only eight had been selected to sing I'll be Home for Christmas during Jess' visit based on the results of the Truman Idol talent search.

Love it!

The winner was Aviation Boatswain's Mate 3rd Class John Britt. His wife and child will even get to accompany him to New York to watch the performance.

"It's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I'm honored to be part of it," said Britt. "I'm excited to be able to represent Truman, as well as the entire Navy. My family and shipmates are proud of me, and I couldn't ask for anything better."

Their duet will also be featured on Jessica's upcoming Christmas album.

Joe Simpson said:

"She knows the sacrifices the military men and women are making on behalf of their country, and she wants to do what she can in return. She's proud to be able to sing with someone fighting for our freedom."

Everyone really enjoyed her visit!

"I've never meet anybody famous before," said Operation Specialist Seaman Alison Wagner. "It's really great that she took the time to come out here to visit us while we were deployed. It definitely lifted my spirits and made me feel a lot better being on deployment."

Jessica added:

"I've been on many USO trips and I always enjoy sitting and talking with service members. To be on board Truman has been a blessing. I've met so many amazing people, and everybody has been so welcoming and made me feel like I'm at home. I can't express enough how much I appreciate the sacrifices you make for our country."

Amazing!
