“Lieutenant Dan”, YOU da man!
In a day where one is more likely to see an actor or actress either having a public “melt-down”, or being an exhibitionist with an “accidental” “wardrobe malfunction”, Gary Sinise is a breath of fresh air.
Gary Sinise gives back to our service men and women by entertaining the troops with some fifty shows a year. Our service men and women endure isolation, deprivation and low pay for us and our country.
Sinise makes sure that they know that someone cares; his concern is genuine. He felt compelled to do something for the forces after September 11th, and not making just a passing “show” of it, he has continued to give of himself.
Besides entertaining the troops, Gary’s organization helps veterans return to normalcy as much as possible. His foundation providing a home for a severely injured veteran.
Thanks for bringing my wife and daughter home,” Mills, a quadruple amputee following combat injuries suffered during his third tour in Afghanistan, told a gathering of about 100 builders, veterans and politicians who turned out for the ceremony to dedicate the home off Pond Road.
The smart home, outfitted with technology designed to make Mills as independent as possible, was a gift from a foundation established by actor Gary Sinise and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, named in honor of a New York City firefighter who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
“We hope this house will give you the independence most of us take for granted every day,” said Chris Kuban of the Gary Sinise Foundation.
