Reese's Dad Is Hurricane Hero

Actress REESE WITHERSPOON is tremendously proud of her father's Hurricane Katrina relief efforts because the former Army medic has come out of retirement to help those in need in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The SWEET HOME ALABAMA star's family used to live in New Orleans and her father felt compelled to do more than stand by and watch the tragedy unfold when the hurricane hit last month (AUG05).

The actress says, "My father is down there right now helping out. He's a doctor and he's worked in the military for years and years. He's retired out of the International Guard.

"He's down there with a lot of his ex-Army buddies and they're doing some good work down there."

The only thing Witherspoon regrets is the fact she can't contact her dad to find out how he's getting on.

She adds, "He's been really hard to get in touch with."
