Some of the stars of of BET’s “Being Mary Jane” took time to visit troops Tuesday at Naval Base San Diego as part of a USO tour.
The group – which included actors Richard Roundtree, B.J. Britt and Aaron Spears – spent the bulk of their day with sailors and their families, signing autographs, posing for photos and even taking a tour of the base’s facilities.
It wasn’t the first time “Being Mary Jane” cast members hung out with troops at a USO event. Some of the show’s actors stopped by the Mobile USO to send messages of thanks to service members at The BET Experience in Los Angeles last June. The San Diego stop was also part of BET’s celebration of Black History Month, which kicked off with a new episode of “Being Mary Jane” on Feb. 3.
The cast members and attendees shared their experiences on Twitter, too:
