“Through Independence Day, HuffPost Impact is running a series of stories called ”Breaking the Roles,“ highlighting the servicemen and women of our armed forces who don’t typically see the media spotlight, and the remarkable work of the USO, who are tireless in their efforts to support all who defend our country.”
We’re thrilled to announce this six-part series, running online at the Huffington Post’s in partnership with Causecast, that tells untold stories of those who support our men and women in uniform! Check back each day to see the latest interview.
Today kicks off with a hilarious interview of Jeffrey Ross, by Jonathan Daniel Harris. Ross is a longtime supporter of the USO and the military. His directorial debut, “Patriot Act: A Jeffrey Ross Home Movie” captured his own life changing experience traveling on a USO tour and entertaining American soldiers stationed around Iraq during the early days of the war. It screened at many top festivals and even won Best Picture at the Montreal Comedy Festival. Click here to read our latest blog post on Jeffrey Ross and be sure to follow him on Twitter.
