    Gary was also awarded a Presidential Citizens Medal by President George W. Bush which is a great honor and just below the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Gary is also the lead singer of The LT Dan Band, he directed the film “Of Mice and Men”, was made an honorary U.S. Navy Chief Petty Officer for his efforts in helping veterans and was named an honorary Marine by the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Truly an amazing and multi talented man. His book “Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service.” Is an amazing read for anyone who is interested in the story of becoming a patriot and philanthropist. Gary, I suspect, will earn a Medal of Freedom eventually for all of the exemplary work he has done for our veterans.

    Actually the first role I think of when I hear mention Gary Sinise is Astronaut Ken Mattingly from "Apollo XIII", and I've seen "Forrest Gump".

    People are way way waaay too carried away with cinema. They take the actors who played the part on film and use them as compasses for their lives. Absolutely ridiculous how obsessed and easily defeated by movies human beings are. When Independence Day came out one critic said 'it shows how united the human race can be!' One actor who played a bad guy in a soap opera was cursed and swore at and had stones thrown at him as he walked down the street. People are unbelievable. People used to write into the actresses who played angels on Touched By an Angel for life advice! People are lost because they follow blind leaders.

    Two things: 1) David Muir has to be the most vacuous nothing-man ever to 'anchor' a network newscast, and 2) Don't tell us where we know Gary Sinise from. His career is well-known beyond a 25 year old film role. To be told by Mr Newsbot who Gary Sinise is.. fuck off. You make Elizabeth Vargas look like Walter Cronkite.

    WOW! I learned something today. I had no idea Gary Sinise was so active with this unheralded support and charity work. I applaud him and feel humbled by the humanity of this person. When I find things like this, so unexpectedly, it makes me feel good about the hope for the world. It certainly brings into sharp focus how trivial and petty other so-called celebrities behave in their pampered and out of touch lives. Well done Gary. Good job buddy! You Yanks (I'm a Brit) should make this sort of stuff more widely known across the pond.

    Great American. Now let's get to the real issue of our "representatives" that have sold us and the Americans who serve in our military out by sending them into illegal wars. The media that lies to us and them to bolster said wars. Liars and snakes using our men and women who serve with honor as pawns in scams that have nothing to do with our security, or freedom, or human rights, but rather displace millions, starve children, destroy their futures all to enrich oil corporations. Those are the true facts that history proves time and time again. Enough with the complicit false "patriotism". If you follow the mainstream media narrative or 99% of the Democrats or Republicans in Washington ( truly one in the same party ) Then you are complicit in the lies and murder of millions of innocent people. Fools and accomplices that allow themselves to be propagandised by these criminal vultures. Time to wake up was long ago.
