Jake Gyllenhaal showed his support for U.S. military veterans with an emotional poetry reading at a charity event in New York City on Wednesday (08May13).

The Brokeback Mountain star read the poem Dulce et Decorum Est by British soldier and leading World War I poet Wilfred Owen at the inaugural Words of War event for the Headstrong Project.

Gyllenhaal also presented the foundation, which provides mental healthcare and support for war veterans, with a donation of $5,000 (£3,225) for eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing training, a psychotherapy to treat post-traumatic stress disorder.

Girls star Adam Driver and actress Joanne Tucker also shared war-themed pieces that touched on the hardships of military conflict and the longterm effects on the veteran's family.
