Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. sent an open letter to U.S. servicemembers expressing his support for their service and sacrifice. His letter officially launched the "Letter from Hollywood" project created by fellow actor D.B. Sweeney.

Sweeney has been collecting similar letters from his friends in Hollywood providing them the opportunity to thank the men and women in uniform for what they do every day.

Gooding's letter is the first of many to come from members of the entertainment industry. A new letter of support will be posted every Tuesday on the Army Community Covenant Web site.

Feedback is welcome on the Community Covenant Facebook discussion board.
