You’ll never see this type of good cheer on the MSM. All they want to do is attempt to bring down the morale of the troops and the American people, not raise it.

He's been a supporter of what we do for a long time- you are right that it is nice to see.

I hope that, someday, the rest of hollywood will understand that their big paychecks and ability to choose their own destinies are paid for by millions who sign the dotted line. Mr. Sinese understands that and is genuinely grateful.

Indeed.

It’s a shame. During WWII, if the actors and singers didn’t have their boots in the mud, flying or sailing... they were visiting the troops, advertising war bonds, making patriotic movies and records... gave everything.

Hollywood now? Please.

God bless this man for standing up and representing.

Singers and actors should be touring with the Freedom Concert (for college scholarships for kids who lose parents in war), all over the states and other countries that have troops there with us. They should have hundreds of them. Where are the artists with groundbreaking patriotic artwork in museums or anywhere? Where’s our Norman Rockwell? Why aren’t more companies contributing to the effort re: merchandise or technologies? It’s a write off... so they’re just hardcore anti-war. No spines.

Musician? What does he play?

He also did a fine job in Apollo 13, and on the Disney ride Mission:Space.

A guy I went to high school with lost his legs in an IED in Iraq, and Mr. Sinise visited him. They posted the pics on his blog- what a great guy.
