Four former divas from World Wrestling Entertainment ventured to Afghanistan as a morale boost for Army personnel, according to the Armed Forces Press Service.

Terry Runnels, Nora "Molly Holly" Greenwald, Christy Hemme and Shelly Martinez visited troops at the Bagram air base and other locations. For Martinez, it turned into a fact-finding mission.

"People back home will never really understand how things are here without actually having been here," she told press service reporter.
