USO Tour: Matthew Lillard & Josh Charles

There are moments in the life of a military family that are just pretty awesome!
We were fortunate enough to be able to attend a USO Tour meet & greet with 
Matthew Lillard (Shaggy from Scooby Doo) & Josh Charles (Dead Poets Society). 

David was all about meeting Shaggy! 
(Sorry Josh Charles! It was nice meeting you too!)

One of the great things about the people who join the USO Tour, is that they show a genuine interest in meeting everyone. Matthew Lillard immediately got down to David's level to talk to him. He asked if he knew who he was, to which David immediately responded "You're Shaggy from Scooby Doo!" 

A whispered secret question ... "Do you want to hear my Shaggy voice?"

What happened next was nothing short of magical! As Matthew Lillard starts speaking as Shaggy... David bursts into hysterical giggles!!

 "Scooby Doo, do you see any ghosts?! Ahhhh! Run for your lives!!!"


 A very nice gentleman took our photo... he accidentally cut David out... 
(side note: I pretty much cracked up at this photo... Josh Charles is workin' that camera!! lol)

As we walked away, David said "Mom! He sounded JUST like Shaggy from Scooby Doo!! That was AWESOME!!" As we went to dinner the chatter continued.. he even had to make a phone call to his Poppi to tell him about his big moment! I honestly wasn't sure that my little man was ever going to sleep tonight! He was just so excited!

So thank you to the USO for arranging such an awesome event, An even bigger thank you to Matthew Lillard & Josh Charles for giving of your time & talents to come brighten up our little community. There is a little boy whose world was just lit up by meeting you both.
