Cher. God Bless her.

The 60-year-old Oscar-winning entertainer will appear Thursday before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces with Dr Bob Meaders, the founder of Operation Helmet, to ask for helmet upgrades for the soldiers. The diva original has donated $131,000 to Operation Helmet.

“I know that I am an entertainer and from Hollywood and should have no conscience,” she commented, “but I am an American and I just cannot bear these people for another moment.”
