Whitney Houston’s ‘Welcome Home Heroes’ Aired On HBO In March 1991

Whitney Houston - Welcome Home Heroes

March 31, 1991 – Whitney performed in concert at the Naval Air Station in Norfolk, Virginia, for an audience of 3,500 servicemen and women returning from the Gulf War. That concert, Welcome Home Heroes, was broadcast live on HBO and later released on VHS/DVD. HBO agreed to unscramble its cable signal, allowing the show to be available for free to more than 50 million households. Whitney said, “Until I spent time with these military people, I didn’t really appreciate how special they are. I was surrounded by courteous, brave men and women … I sang my heart out to them … and still felt them give more in return.”
