The mercury may have topped 120 degrees (!), but fan favorites America Ferrera, Ryan O’Nan and Jason Ritter – along with writer/director Ryan Peters – stayed cool as they wrapped up their first USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour to the Persian Gulf, having visited with over 1300 service members along the way!  The group’s Handshake Tour found them greeting Troops, posing for pictures, and signing autographs as they traveled throughout the Persian Gulf for eight days.
