Pop superstar Cher has launched a new initiative to get better helmets to US troops serving around the globe. The BELIEVE singer has teamed up with Doctor BOB MEADERS, the founder and president of Operation-Helmet.org, to help shed light on current problems with the existing helmets being used by members of the US Military. The Oscar-winning actress and singer has committed to working with Operation Helmet to upgrade existing helmets to protect troops against blasts and impact concussions. She will appear alongside Operation Helmet officials before the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces later this week (15JUN06) as they discuss the need for an upgrade in military headwear.
