David Spade makes his living as a comedian – but he takes the health of American troops seriously.

The actor is joining forces with the nonpartisan, non-profit group, Operation Helmet, to provide $100,000 worth of shock-absorbing helmet pads for U.S. troops serving in the Middle East.

The upgraded helmet pads drastically reduce brain injuries from IED's, bombs and vehicular accidents, according to Dr. Bob Meaders, founder and president of Operation Helmet. To date, they have provided 41,000 helmet pad updates to the men and women on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan.
