Camp WWE - WWE Tribute to the Troops - Netflix
WWE Tribute to the Troops is an annual event held by WWE and Armed Forces Entertainment in December during the holiday season since 2003, to honor and entertain United States Armed Forces members serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. WWE performers and employees travel to these countries and interact with troops for at least three days, visiting military camps, bases and hospitals, including the Walter Reed Army Medical Center and Bethesda Naval Hospital. WWE then holds a free show for the troops, which later airs along with videos of troop interaction and messages from soldiers to their families and friends at home, in a televised program of the same title.

In 2004, the United Service Organizations (USO) of Metropolitan Washington awarded WWE with the first-ever Legacy of Hope award “for its extensive support of our troops and the USO's Operation Care Package program”. In 2005, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service awarded WWE the first-ever Three-Commander Coin Award “for WWE's support of its partnership with AAFES to improve the quality of life for our troops by supporting service members and their families worldwide”. During the 2006 show, Director of Air Force Morale, Welfare and Recreation Art Myers presented WWE Chairman Vince McMahon with the Secretary of Defense Exceptional Public Service Award. McMahon immediately presented the award to John Bradshaw Layfield, who had the idea for the show. In 2007, the WWE received the first Corporate Patriot Award at the annual GI Film Festival in Washington, D.C., “in recognition of its ongoing support and appreciation of the U.S. military and their families, particularly its annual holiday Tribute to the Troops tour to entertain troops in war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan”. In 2008, then President George W. Bush aired a message during the show, thanking WWE for giving US troops the gift of entertainment every Christmas. He did so again in 2010. In 2011 and 2012, WWE aired messages from President Barack Obama during the broadcasts, expressing his gratitude for the Armed Forces for their service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
