They spent most of their holidays vacationing in Thailand, but Beyoncé and Jay Z still took the time to spread some cheer overseas!

U.S. troops stationed in Kuwait and Afghanistan were treated to a screening of the couple’s HBO special On the Run – and Queen Bey even said hello herself.

“I just want to say a big thank you for everything you do to keep our country safe,” the singer said in a video message. “We all sleep better at night knowing that you guys are protecting us, and we are filled with gratitude. So we wanted to do something special for you guys.”

While they couldn’t be home to ring in 2015, the troops appreciated the homestyle entertainment.

“Watching the On the Run concert made me forget I was in Afghanistan for the holidays thank you,” SSGT Ferguson said in a USO press release.
