TWITTER: @ColeHauser will join @the_USO on his first tour to visit troops in the Middle East!
WHAT: USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour featuring actor Cole Hauser
WHEN: Summer 2014
WHERE: Middle East
WHY: Actor Cole Hauser will soon visit deployed troops in the Middle East on his first USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. As part of the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign, Hauser will create and share moments that matter with troops during his eight-day visit abroad. The moment-filled visit will include meet-and-greet sessions with troops, posing for photos and signing autographs.
Well-known for his appearances in blockbuster movies like “Dazed and Confused,” “Good Will Hunting,” “Tigerland,” “Hart’s War,” “2 Fast 2 Furious” and “Tears of the Sun”, Hauser has been acting for more than 20 years. Recently, Hauser starred opposite Johnny Depp in the Warner Bros. film “Transcendence.” He is currently appearing in the new season of DirecTV’s drama “Rogue” with actresses Thandie Newton.
The “Every Moment Counts” campaign is the USO’s year-round intiative, inviting Americans to join in making moments that matter for troops and their families. From holidays and children’s births to sports games and date nights, our troops miss numerous everyday moments like this when they are deployed.
QUOTE: Attributed to Cole Hauser: "I’m very excited to travel to the Middle East on my first USO tour and spend time with troops who are far from home and sacrificing so much for our country. I couldn’t be happier to show them my support and gratitude for their service.”
