John Mayer continued his support for U.S. soldiers last week (ends28Apr13) by painting a veteran's home in Shreveport, Louisiana. The singer, who donated proceeds from his 2012 tour to help America's former servicemen and women, picked up a paintbrush in aid of the Veterans Build 2013 campaign, which aims to provide properties for those returning from duty. He tells the Shreveport Times, "You'd be surprised how quickly you take value in your work when you start putting the first couple of brush strokes down. "All of a sudden, I feel like we have a common goal in getting this house, at least on the paint side of things, to be as good as it would be if a professional came in and did it. It's personal."
