Willis salutes troops with party on USS Intrepid
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - Bruce Willis, famous for his movie roles, believes the real stars are the military and veterans.
In honor of Veterans Day, the actor threw a party Thursday for hundreds of veterans on board the USS Intrepid, a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier that has been converted into a museum in New York City.
Willis says supporting veterans isn’t about politics but about freedom, and he wants to recognize the men and women who’ve sacrificed their lives for Americans.
He says “there’s no country like” the United States and that when he travels the world, he always loves “coming home.”
The party was sponsored by Sobieski vodka, whose parent company Willis is a part owner of.
