Paris HiltonMore than a hundred-uniformed US sailors are readying up to party with Hilton during New York’s Fleet Week ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. According to Pop Tarts, Hilton has decided to step up as an official "celebrity ambassador" for the USO’s new initiative.

“I’m always looking for ways I can use my voice as a celebrity and I think there is nothing more worthwhile and patriotic than supporting our troops. When I first heard about the Songs for Soldiers initiative it immediately touched my heart,” Hilton told Pop Tarts.

“It’s so easy to take for granted our freedom and happiness and forget about those who are endangering their lives every day to make it possible,” she added.
