Rocker Tommy Lee has come to the aid of US troops stationed in Afghanistan by sending them a ship-load of his latest album.
The Motley Crue drummer was appalled when he heard that commercial shipping containers full of personal items destined for a US Army National Guard unit in Afghanistan were raided by thieves.
He immediately contacted charity organisation Operation AC, which sends care packages to deployed US troops, and made arrangements for copies of his album, TOMMYLAND: THE RIDE, to be shipped out.
Lee says, "I'm so happy to be able to do something for them. Music gets us through a lot."
Boosted by his latest charity venture, Lee also plans to send more copies of his album to other troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
