Megawatt moviestar Angelina Jolie took time out to visit Ramstein Air Base and Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and talk with wounded warriors and stationed service men and women. Jolie also popped in on a departing Med Evac aircraft loaded with wounded soldiers that was set to depart for Andrews Air Force Base.
See how her visit affected some of those homebound troops in this video.
The Academy Award-winning Jolie is famous for her roles in films like “Girl, Interrupted,” “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” “Salt” and the Lara Croft films, but she is also known the world over as an active advocate of humanitarian efforts. Jolie was recently in Cannes, France, to promote her voice-over work in the upcoming sequel to the animated movie “Kung Fu Panda” and was also informed that her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey,” has secured distribution in the United States and will be in theaters this December. – Christian Pelusi, USO
