During a recent interview with The Wrap, Lacey Evans commented on why entertaining the troops is so important to her, and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On her struggles before she enlisted, which “saved” her life: “Growing up, I did not have the role models that I needed. I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I didn’t know what a positive, happy, healthy lifestyle looked like. All I knew, while looking around, [was] my dysfunctional, drug-infested, mental health. Anger, depression. It seeped [into] and destroyed my family. That’s the life that I knew.”
On why entertaining the troops is important: “I know not only what the military goes through — the veterans, the active-duty — but their spouses, their kids. They’re going through hell. The divorce rate’s high, the arguments are high. The veterans are tired, the active-duty — they go through a lot.”
WWE Tribute to the Troops airs tomorrow on the FOX Network.
