Actor meets with soldiers before formal ball

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Soldiers with the 703rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and 3rd Infantry Division got a special treat Friday night.

They got the chance to meet actor Joshua Bitton. Bitton met and thanked local soldiers at the Savannah Queen Riverboat before the Units' Formal Ball.

Bitton said he learned about the sacrifices of the military and their families when he was preparing for his role in "The Pacific" and wanted to give back to those serving by thanking them for their service.

"From that, I have a profound respect and love for them, so when I was invited it was probably the biggest honor I think I have ever had and the most humbling thing," said Bitton.

Bitton is known for his role in the HBO miniseries "The Pacific", the show "Castle" and many other films and television shows.
