YONGSAN GARRISON, Republic of Korea --The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders brought some of their team spirit from Texas to USAG Yongsan, to boost the morale of the troops during a meet and greet at the R & R Bar and Grill here, May 10.
"I really enjoyed the visit from the cheerleaders," said Pfc. Lim Hong-seo, from USAG Yongsan Public Affairs Office. "This was my first time experiencing something like this and it was great to feel the appreciation from them."
The cheerleaders brought a taste of their hometown spirit to Korea, and a familiar face to the Yongsan community.
"I have the best memories of being here in Korea," said Jenna Lene Jackson, a current Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. "This is where I met the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders during a USO tour, and it's always an honor to come here to give back to my community."
Jackson attended Seoul American High during her Junior and Senior year while her father was stationed here in the army. Her fellow cheerleaders visiting Yongsan were Brittany Schram, Mia Greenhouse, Jacqueline Bob, Syndey Durso and Lauren Williams.
"Don't give up on your dream, keep pushing forward and never let outside influences bring you down no matter how tough the road is to get there," Jackson said.
"This is definitely a good thing that they do for the troops," said Maj. Aaron Basham, from Special Operations Command Korea (SOCKOR). "It boosts morale and lets the Soldiers know they are appreciated for all their hard work."
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders thanked everyone for coming out and also thanked American Airlines for providing them with transportation to make the trip possible.
