From The Desk of BUBBA KUDZU....

Wade Jackson did more entertaining on shows with the GRAND OLE OPRY STAR'S ROAD SHOW in one documented year than many of the other recording stars did on the OPRY BROADCAST itself and was awarded the AIR FORCE COMMENDATION MEDAL (signed by the Vice Commander in Chief and the Secretary of the Air Force) for meritorious service befor he retired. It was Wade's primary military duty to entertain the troops while he served in the Army and the Air Force for more than twenty years. The Military Services regard troop morale and morale building entertainment very seriously and have been known to take fair advantage of talents like Wade Jackson, Faron Young and Jimmy Rogers and many others, while they where in the Military Services. I had the privilage to be with Wade and his Show-Band, "THE STRING KINGS" on a number of their spectacular appearances while he was on duty assignment in Germany. ~Bubba Kudzu ~Hillbilly King of Comedy
