Operation Helmet Rep Letter

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, a nonprofit group that supplies helmet upgrade kits.
Cher has always been outspoken, though not especially active in politics. But she's taken to heart the plight of soldiers abroad. In recent weeks, she has donated $131,000 to Operation Helmet. And over Memorial Day weekend she made a surprise call to C-SPAN's "Washington Journal" that left TV viewers totally "Moonstruck."
...
"I'd never done anything like speak before Congress," said Meaders. So Cher said, 'Do you want me to come and hold your hand?' So I said, 'Absolutely.'"
Meaders, 71, is a retired Navy doctor and veteran of the Vietnam War. His grandson is a Marine now serving in Iraq, near the Syrian border. He began collecting money for the helmet upgrades when his grandson was in basic training.
"We only send helmets to those who request them, and what we send represents a drop in the bucket," Meaders said.

Operation Helmet founder Bob Meaders said his group wasn't searching for a celebrity spokesperson, but they consider themselves lucky that Cher has decided to get involved in their work.
"She says to us, 'It's not about me' … but she's a great PR person for us," he said.

Meanwhile, the founder of Operation Helmet, former Navy corpsman Bob Meaders, told the committee that his group's research with their supply company, Oregon Aero, found that adding his charity's protective inserts to the lightweight helmet can reduce the impact of a blast on a Marines' head by nearly 60 percent.
He added that he'd be happy to share the medical information his group has gathered with any of the services.
"I would love for them to take this over, so I could quit and go play some golf," Meaders said.

"We get e-mails every day from young troopers with families who can't afford to buy their own helmet kits," says Robert Meaders, M.D., who founded Operation Helmet after his Marine grandson requested upgrade kits to make his company's helmets safer in Iraq.
