London, May 11 - Actors Bruce Willis and Susan Sarandon have teamed up to campaign for better treatment for US' injured war veterans.
Willis is a Republican and Sarandon a Democrat. Though they have opposing political views, both are upset at the condition of soldiers when they get back home.
'I realised that even though I got to see a lot of people, I wasn't really able to see the Republicans. That's when I called Willis. I didn't know him, but I did know that he saw himself as somebody who advocated these guys to go, and that he would surely be advocating for help for them when they got back,' contactmusic.com quoted Sarandon as saying.
Willis added: 'It's an unpopular war and they - do feel as if their country has forgotten about them. I went to Walter Reed Army Medical Centre... I couldn't stop crying. It was just heartbreaking. They come home with arms and legs shot off, their lives wrecked, and not a lot of help from the government...
'Somebody's got to speak out for veterans. Susan and I are both talking about the same issue. I feel the same way that she does on it.'
