Who has ever heard of a country music concert starting at 6:00 A.M.? It's not so unusual if you're accustomed to starting your day before 5:00 A.M..
For the Marine at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, this sunrise country music concert was a reprieve from work duty.
Country music songwriter and singer Sarah Buxton serenaded about 100 Marines Friday morning. It's part of an appreciation day the Marine Corp Community Services provides through out the year.
Corporal Dustin Worley says these day are special to him, since it won't be long before they're sent overseas for duty. "It makes me understand we are wanted and we are needed and therefore for us to provide for civilian families out in the world, everywhere, it just means the world to us."
WITN and Thunder County radio station were proud sponsors of Friday morning's appreciation day.
