The actor said: 'It's been an illuminating experience for me.

'I've always been very proud of the service of the military men and women, but we don't have too much of an opportunity to exchange thoughts and ideas.

'I wanted to convey the sentiment that I feel and that most of the people of the United States feel, and that is an appreciation for the service they've given, the sacrifice that they give and the amount of hours they put in, it's really remarkable and appreciated.'

Cranston had a chance to eat dinner with airmen prior to discussing his memoir, A Life in Parts.

Families of the airmen were then given the opportunity to talk and take photos with the 61-year-old.

He added: 'It was fun, mostly just to break up the rank, and just get in among them and talk to them about just life.

'It's been a great time. Especially for me, to be able to not talk about myself, but to ask questions.

'It helps me, it makes me feel good that I can be on the same level with these guys.'
