Charlie Sheen hasn't spent all of his money on crack and hookers ... in fact, the Warlock has announced he's donating ONE MILLION DOLLARS to support our men and women in uniform.

Sheen has pledged to give at least $1 million to the U.S.O (United Service Org.) ... the largest single contribution the USO has ever received from an individual.

Sheen says he will donate 1% of the profits from his "Anger Management" earnings ... with a minimum of $1 mil ... and an unlimited cap. So the more $ he makes from his show, the more $ goes to the USO.

Brig Gen (ret) John Pray, EVP and Chief of Staff, USO released a statement saying, “[Sheen's] support is greatly appreciated, especially from our wounded warriors and their families.”

Sheen also released a statement saying, "It’s an honor for me to be able to give back to these men and women of the military who have done so much for all of us."

He adds, "They put their lives on the line for us every day, and I’m just happy that my work on 'Anger Management' can bring a little bit of relief to the troops and their families.”

I'm waiting for Gary Sinese to jump all over Sheen's butt on this.

Sheen is still having a pissing contest only it's been with himself. Anger Management has been loosing ratings for the last 4 weeks stright .

Whatever double secret probation ratings numbers Sheen and FX have for FX to ok an additional 90 episodes who knows. What is known is that FX won't make a decision until all 10 episodes air, rating numbers crunched.


Sheen using our troops to try and get ratings, Sheen is nervous. This could backfire on him. Troops being used for his tv ratings.


There is not one ounce of sincerity for his pending donation. If Sheen was sincere, he simply would have donated and not say anything. But Sheen made it a point for his pending donation.

While you always suspect a hidden agenda with a guy like this, a million bucks is a million bucks. At least he recognizes that there are people fighting to keep this country free (even if guys like him use their freedom to frolic with booze, blow and hookers).

Donating money to the biggest US spending sector is like handing out free hamburgers to fat people.

Doing the right thing for the wrong reason is fine to me. Good for Charlie, so long as our troops benefit. What really made me sick was this was the largest donation the USO has ever had. Where are all of you rich a-holes who made a fortune in oil the last decade ? Come on America, we can do better !
