Milo Ventimiglia: My USO Tour Pictures

Heroes hottie Milo Ventimiglia celebrated his 31st birthday earlier this month with some real-life heroes — U.S. soldiers!

The television star took a break from shooting his hit NBC series to visit the military troops on a USO tour, spending nearly a week in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan. The troops even presented him with a birthday cake for his efforts!

“The tendency is for people to just read the news and talk about the war,” Milo has said. “That wasn’t enough for me. To be able to come out here and say ‘thank you’ was important to me. It made me really happy to see smiling faces. That’s what it is all about, knowing I made their day.”

He added, “My father’s a veteran, my uncle’s a veteran, my grandfather was a veteran. I nearly went into the Navy myself when I was 18. So I got a chance to go overseas and give the men and women of the armed forces a little bit of a respite.”

And apparently the troops keep up with Heroes! Milo shared, “When I was over in Iraq and Afghanistan, a lot of soldiers were like, `Dude, will you just kill Sylar already? Will you just get rid of him?’ And I’m like, `Man, I don’t know if you’re gonna want that just yet. I think you’re going to be very surprised as to what happens.’”

    Great Guy!

    Says hello and thank you to our troops. Hopefully he sets an example for other stars to follow.

  • gotit

    So, another well-paid punk celeb who supports the war — from WAAAAY over here. Impressive.

  • doit

    #14- you should look up what the USO Tour is and get yourself educated.

  • Kristin

  • tata

    LOVE HIM!

  • tara

    not only does he applaud murderers, he’s smug enough to think he “made their day”…

  • JB

    Nice try, but using the US troups to get some good press is not working. He’s still a creepy old man.

  • che

    It doesn’t matter what you you think about the war, the poor bastards stuck over there deserve support. Your own president has sold them up s**t creek, no one is arguing about that. But to slur all of the soldiers by labeling them rapists and murderers? That’s completely ignorant. Henry Rollins is a massive Bush hater and opponent of the war, and he’s done dozens of USO tours – because he supports the soldiers, not the government . There is a difference.

    And JB? I don’t think celebrities give a flying f**k about what internet nerds like us think of their love life and reputation, so whether this improves his standing in your eyes or not is really irrelevant. Get over yourself.

  • melissa

    he is HOT!
    and guys, learn what the USO tour is before you say junk and make yourselves look like idiots.
    and tom cruise and katie holmes are 16 years apart,

    Milo is damn FINE and mega Hot!!!!
    As for the best guy in the world, then who is the best guy! No one can say who is the best, that is just down to personal preference! But he is definately ONE OF THE BEST, and is up there with the rest of them i.e george clooney, johnny depp etc. He is the hottest, and in my opinion one of the best looking guys, if not the best in the world!
