The 17-year-old actress shared in a video with CNN, “My dad has always been really involved with the troops and my granddad was a Kentucky legislator so he was always really involved in showing them their support. It was really important to us to bring a little but of our personal life onto the show.”
Jason chimed in, “We didn’t want it to just be extras. We really wanted it to be about the Military families and do something for them. I’m glad it worked out that way. I have an older brother who is in the Navy and stationed in Japan; and I won’t get to see him for years and years at a time. To do something in his honor, it’s a great thing.”
Madison Pettis was also on hand for the special taping.
