Celebrities who support our Troops
It’s always refreshing and welcoming to see celebrities who ‘give back’, in particular those who support our troops. Take Dwayne ‘The Rock” Johnson for example.

Dwayne Johnson totally rocks.
The San Andreas star, also known as “The Rock,” announced his latest project at Saturday night’s Spike TV Guy’s Choice Awards – a grand scale, celebrity-studded variety show called Rock the Troops that will entertain and support U.S. troops stationed overseas.
“It is so important to me to give back to the troops. I really want to create something special for our boys and girls who are overseas and hopefully we do such a good job that we can do it again and again,” Johnson told EW backstage at the taped awards show. “I have military in my family, some vets and two Navy SEALs. That was the genesis of that.”
While no participants have been formally announced – and the overseas location hasn’t been determined – the show will feature headliners from “the world of music, movies, comedy, sports and more,” per a release from Johnson’s production company, Seven Bucks Productions.
I was always a fan of The Rock, but knowing he cares about the Troops, makes me a bigger fan.
