(NEW YORK) — The latest stars to get behind the Got Your Six campaign, in support of military veterans are Sarah Jessica Parker, Michael Douglas, Brian Williams, Tom Hanks, Alex Baldwin and Bradley Cooper. All are featured in a new pubic service announcement, reports E!
The campaign intends to bridge the divide between military and civilian life for veterans. Inspiration for the cause came from first lady Michelle Obama’s Joining Forces campaign, which in turn was created with support from the Clinton Global initiative. Numerous celebrities have signed up to lend their support.
In a statement released Wednesday, the first lady said, “The entertainment industry captures our imaginations, opens our eyes and touches our hearts, and I’m proud to work with them on Joining Forces initiative.”
