This November, Tryon Palace will pay tribute to the many military heroes in Eastern North Carolina with a patriotic night of USO-inspired singing, dancing, and comedy. Letters From Home was started by Erinn Dearth at the suggestion of her late father, Pat Dearth, a veteran of the United States Coast Guard. Since that time, the group has made its mark performing in venues big and small across the United States, touching the hearts and caressing the memories of hundreds of thousands nationwide with their mission to honor our veterans, active military, and their families. Erinn and Dan Beckamnn, comedian and singer, take audiences on a trip down memory lane with 1940s-1960s music, singing, tap dancing, comedy, audience interaction and a variety of other surprises along the way. Please join us that evening in saluting our military heroes and celebrating our nation.
