Gay actor Bill Brochtrup (NYPD Blue) tells TVGuide.com that he’ll be joining a USO tour this summer to visit troops stationed in Saudi Arabia. He explains, “It’s called a hardship tour because the soldiers get lonely away from home.” Ever the patriot, he adds, “I’m happy to offer whatever comfort is required.”
