Milo Ventimiglia shares a meal with a soldier in the mess hall of a Forward Operating Base (FOB) just outside of Baghdad, Iraq. The 31-year-old Heroes star visited some real life heroes while traveling to Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan from July 6 to 12. He opened up to Men’s Vogue about his experience overseas:
What inspired you to get involved and take a USO (United Service Organizations) tour? Whether you support war, or don’t support war, there’s no reason not to support a soldier. It’s a very honorable thing that they’re entering into.
How did your girlfriend and family feel about you going? Everybody close to me was a little nervous about me traveling abroad through a war zone, but the one message I got from everyone was to be safe and come home. Everyone was supportive. And everybody was happy when I got home.
Check out the slideshow of USO pictures that Milo took himself at MensVogue.com.
