Gary Sinise Building Homes for Wounded American Vets


"Building custom, smart homes for America's most severely wounded heroes."

2.22.2014

Actor Gary Sinise, well known for his role as Lieutenant Dan in "Forrest Gump," is the founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation. His foundation serves soldiers and first responders through various charities and programs including building custom homes for severely wounded veterans.

A video from the foundation shows the technology that is built into these homes to help soldiers who have returned home "forever changed by their sacrifices." From wheelchair access to electronic levers that move cabinets and stoves up and down, these "smart homes" are allowing America's freedom fighters a chance to return home and "reclaim their independence."

To help cover the costs, Sinise has launched a donation campaign during Sunday's Daytona 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup. He will be the Honorary Starter for the race and wave the green flag.

Gary Sinise is a great Amercian helping true American heroes.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

I wonder if Obama or Holder will step in and order him to stop helping Vets? :smash:

He's a good man.. I think his outspoken conservatism is why they cancelled his CSI series.

I sense sarcasm in your post.  :nono: My son and I were watching tv last night, when a Wounded Warriors commercial came on. I thought he was going to cry when he said the government should be doing what WW is doing. As much as we voluntarily do for the military, the government still keeps taking away. Paybacks will be a bitch some day if the democrats and Obama keeps their crap up.

BTW, I posted my reply in your post, ranger. I hit the wrong tab, but removed it.  Sorry!

Nothing irritates me more than our veterans needing to put their hand out while the unworthy cross the border under cover of darkness and earn a cornucopia of benefits.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

His series ran for 9 years.  Viewer fatigue is probably more to blame than his politics.  Otherwise, why would his show last 10 years before CBS finally decided to punish him for his political views?

He's a great advocate for the military, though.  One who really does walk the walk.  CBS did a great piece on him after cancelling CSI:  NY.

Trump has created a cult and looks more and more like Hitler every day.

I liked CSI NY the best, too. The acting as a lot better. I can't stand to watch David Caruso. He can't act, and tries to be so macho.
