“Probably the coolest, most touching moment is when we went to play on the battleship the USS Dewey,” lead singer Matt Thomas told People. “We were on the big aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson and then we took a helicopter to the small battleship. They told us when we got on that battleship that some of these people have been active 14 years and have never had anybody come visit them. The entertainment always goes to the big ships, but nobody ever comes to the small ships.”
