[Ed note: Yeah, that pic might could actually be Val Kilmer, but I'm of the mind that Wes Helms and Kilmer share the same soul after looking at it for a good long while.]

For the second straight year, the Marlins will be spending time and supporting those serving in the armed forces. The trip will be from Feb. 3-11.


That's nice of them.

For what it's worth, Helms (pictured) is a kickboxing aficionado from a military family.

"I love the military. My father, my grandfather, a lot of my family members were in the military. I've just been a fan of the Navy Seals. They go in for special missions. They're the guys that go in and rescue the POWs and stuff like that. If I did it, I would want to go in and be one of the best of the best. I'd be in the Navy Seals, Delta Force. I love the way they train. I think it'd be fun to train the way they train. I love the conditions they put themselves in with the cold, extreme water. I just think it'd be fun to put your mind and body to the test and see how can handle it." [Sun-Sentinel]
