For the troops stationed overseas during the holidays, being thousands of miles away from your family on New Year's Eve is hard, so Beyonce and Jay Z thought they would try to brighten their day. They surprised the U.S troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan with a screening of their On the Run concert special that aired on HBO.
Beyonce also had a special message for the troops.
"I just want to say a big thank you to our troops for everything you do to keep our country safe," she said during the USO countdown to 2015 . "We all sleep better at night knowing that you guys are protecting us, and we're filled with gratitude."
