Wednesday Hero: Gary Sinise

Gary SiniselEveryone knows Gary Sinise, the actor. But Wednesday Hero is profiling Gary Sinise, the patriot. Since 2004, Sinise has been playing for our troops around the world with the Lt. Dan Band as well as for charities and benefits. In 2004 he, along with author Laura Hillenbrand, founded Operation Iraqi Children, now known as Operation International Children, to get school supplies to children in Iraq. The program has since expanded to help children around the world. He serves as the national spokesperson for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial raising awareness for the memorial and other veterans’ services. And in 2010 Sinise started the Gary Sinise Foundation to honor defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
