Emmy Award-winning actress America Ferrera (Ugly Betty), and fellow actors Ryan O’Nan and Jason Ritter, along with writer/director Ryan Piers Williams, are currently traveling in the Persian Gulf on their first-ever USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. During the trip, the foursome have visited troops, signed autographs, posed for photos and extended their appreciation to our nation’s finest.
Ferrera, O’Nan, Ritter and Williams are all avid supporters of the U.S. armed forces and can be seen this summer in The Dry Land, an independent feature film about a war veteran’s return home from the Persian Gulf.
