Gary Sinise: An American Hero
American Thinker ^ | February 26, 2012 | Matthew S. Harrison

Posted on 02/26/2012 12:53:40 PM PST by jazusamo

I'd like to tell you about an American hero I know: Gary Sinise.

Gary, as you know (unless you live under a rock), played Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump and currently stars in CSI New York. He boasts too many other award-winning roles on stage and screen to list. What you probably don't know is how much time, energy, and money Gary spends to serve our troops, both active-duty and veterans, and their families.

I first saw Gary perform in the basement of a Catholic church in Highland Park, IL about a million years ago. The lighting was rotten and the seats were uncomfortable, but the acting was like nothing I'd witnessed -- ever. To watch this man on stage was to step into the mind and life of the character he played. With all that in mind, though, I had no idea at fourteen that I would idolize Gary one day for something having absolutely nothing to do with his acting chops.

Cut to present: while still acting in a long-running hit show on broadcast television, Gary has dedicated his life to our troops. This man is driven like no one I have ever seen to make sure that our active-duty and veteran military men and women are cared for.

Gary is one of my heroes -- he has realized a calling that takes him from one corner of the world to another in support of our troops and their families. He does it all: he raises funds for his and other foundations, builds houses, plays music, and visits war zones. He manages all this at great personal cost, including loss of time with family, grave danger to life and limb when he goes to combat zones, and monetary expenditure from his own pockets.

I just watched a Tony Awards program of past plays-—and Gary Sinise was in the lead role of “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest “. It just showed a part of it but he was excellent. Always have liked him—he has lots of charisma and is very selfless—a good man.

I admire Gary Sinise a lot for all he does, and appreciate his patriotism, but I would not call him a hero. I don’t think he would want people to think him a hero either. Others have given and sacrificed so much more than most of us can even imagine. They are the real heroes.

I fully agree, especially about him not wanting to be labeled a hero. I believe Mr. Harrison has admired Sinise for years and is a hero to him.

I’ll tell you something else about Sinise. He has a band called the “Major Dan Band” or something like that. I saw it perform at a corporate event a few years back.

Most celebrity bands basically just count on people being happy with the presence of the celebrity and go through the motions on preparation. These guys were not only good, but they went all out for nearly two hours. They were damned good!

It said something to me that he treated what clearly wasn’t the central aspect of his career so respectfully and professionally.

I find it interesting that the support for our vets is so broad. I remember that when I returned from VN we started welcoming each other home, something I still do.

I love the change but feel a little disappointed that it wasn't there when we returned.

Gary is currently building homes for multiple-amputee veterans. At present, there are at least ten homes on the drawing board, with more on the way, for more than forty triple- and quadruple-amputees, with some homes already occupied by their new owners. The cost to build these smart houses is immense -- between $500K and $1M -- and Gary has spent a great deal of his own money to launch this endeavor.

The list of organizations Gary is helping is too long to mention, but it also includes organizations that aid the children of our fallen. Gary works with The USO, whose current goal is to raise roughly $100 million to complete and financially support two new USO centers (Operation Enduring Care) -- one at Ft. Belvoir, MD, and one at Walter Reed Army Hospital in Bethesda, MD. These centers help get our troops ready to ship out to places far away and help them reintegrate into society when they return from combat zones and from bases located around the world.


Lieutenant Dan Ping!

I’ve never thought I was a particularly vain person (who of us does?) but I did have an encounter with some tourists down in Washington DC that made my head swell.

I was counter-protesting with the DC Chapter of FR near the White House, as I stood with my sign supporting our troops, a man and woman asked if they could take my picture. I said sure, and faced their camera for the shot holding my sign out.

They then asked me if I was an acorn, to which I responded “Absolutely not!” and they both said they thought I was Gary Sinese!

I will tell you, I don’t have a bone in my body that envies what we see in Hollyweird to even a small degree, but I felt pretty puffed out to be mistaken for that man! They had to choose the ONE person in the film industry that I would have taken that as a compliment on!

(For the record, I look nothing like him, but I suspect it was the military ball cap and sunglasses that made that couple think so!)

Thanks for your service, Little Bill...know that your experiences have something to do withe the broader support we see today.

There were many, myself included, who vowed never again to let the Left be the only voices the troops hear.

It was shameful, and every American who stayed silent when it happened SHOULD be ashamed.

When I see someone with any vet hat I go out of my way to thank them, but when I see a Vietnam Vet, I make a point of shaking their hand, looking them squarely in the eye and saying “Welcome Home, sir. Thank you for serving.”

I say that to you now Little Bill, but if I ever get the chance to see you in person, I’ll shake your hand and say it again.

I met him once where he was the guest of honor at a military ceremony and got to thank him for everything he’s doing. He was a genuinely nice, pleasant guy. Hollywood needs more like him.

Thank you! It never bothered me all that much, I did very well after VN, but I know a lot of friends and relatives that it bothered a lot. We were the sons of the WW2 generation and expected a thanks, I never did, we had a war I served just as all my ancestors served, the price of citizenship.

It was actually worse than that - you were scorned for being in the service.

Check to see if there is an organization called "Patriot Guard" near you. We stand flag line for returning/departing troops, funerals for veterans of any war (and ride motorcycles if you got 'em).

It really helps you forget what was done. I was proud to help honor and grieve the loss of one of our brave Navy Seals this summer.

Here's a link

I wrote something a few years back (It was actually right after the “Gathering of Eagles” in Washington DC, March 2007.

This is an excerpt from it (too long to post here) but I wanted to summarize what I saw (The unfinished piece is called “What I Saw”...

*****************************

We lived overseas during the worst part of the turbulent Sixties, leaving the country in 1967 and returning in the summer of 1971. During that time, we lived in Yokosuka, Japan and Subic Bay, PI. During that time, we were somewhat physically insulated from the social upheaval in the USA. But, as a kid delivering the Stars and Stripes for the better part of four years, I had plenty of time to look at the newspapers. For a young kid, I was pretty well tuned into what was going on in Vietnam and elsewhere. I read of the aviators who had been shot down. My friends and I knew their names. We wore metal wristbands with their names…Alvarez, Stockdale, Denton. But that was not the subject that bothered me the most.

What really affected me was the anti-war movement. I read the articles about the war protests. I saw the pictures of the anti-war protestors. I was a twelve year old kid, and it seemed too real and too close to my world, and when I read the things that those protestors said, it made me angry like nothing else had. What I saw and read had a profound and lasting effect on me.

The “hippies” called people serving in the military things like “baby killers” and “warmongers”. Nowadays, it sounds almost humorous and archaic. But at the time, it was very serious and disturbing. I would look at my dad, my friend’s dad, and the men I saw going on and off the ships and think to myself “These are ‘baby-killers’? ‘Warmongers’?” They were talking about my dad, who I knew was none of those things. I knew he was a good and honorable man. I took it very personally, it hurt me, and I was angry about it. When it came time for my dad to rotate back to the USA, I didn’t really want to go. I had heard stories about LSD being dropped into the lunch of unsuspecting kids at school and other such things. I was nervous.

But when I came back to the USA, the thing that really made me sit up and take notice was the atmosphere in the country regarding the military and the people who served in it. So much had changed in the years we were gone. The negative attitude towards the military was pronounced and vocal. In the local high school I attended, the teachers spoke of the military in extraordinarily negative tones. I remember one class where the teacher had us listen to “Ohio” by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, and the rest of the class was a discussion about why the military was an evil thing. I sat there and stewed, steaming mad. I was embarrassed, angry and hurt, but didn’t have the guts to say anything. To me, it seemed like people left the military and disappeared into society, never to be seen or heard from again. The mental image I had was of men taking their uniforms off, ashamed, putting them in a box and never speaking of their service again to anyone.

My hubby and I were in Germany during those dark days...he was in the Air Force...and we were actually fearful of coming back to the states when it came time! The protests on college campuses, the riots and burnings in cities, the hijackings to Cuba ( remember those?!) were very disturbing and scary!

You guys are great!

I had heard that the lefties, moon bats, Code Pink and the Westborough Baptist people were going to be doing a demonstration right outside of Arlington national Cemetery a couple years ago, so one of the DC Chapter of Free Republic invited me down to take part in the counterprotest.

I admit that there was a little bit more to this because of the Westboro Baptist people. I had seen some of the signs that they hold up, and I almost couldn’t believe it. So part of me really wanted to see this with my own eyes.

So, right outside the opening to Arlington national Cemetery, they had us isolated on one side of the access road, while on the other side the Westboro Baptist people were inside a rectangle barriers set up by the Park service. I think there was only about 10 of them at the most, but what really bothered me was a little girl who was about 6, maybe 7 years old holding an extremely vile sign.

During this time, there had been a steady procession of counter protesters who marched the large circle around them, to the point you just couldn’t see them. Initially, the counter protesters had been standing around them shoulder to shoulder about 3 deep, but after a while the Park service came over and told them they couldn’t protest like that. Apparently, they had to keep walking, so that’s what they did.

On our side of the road, we had some grateful people coming up to us to tell us how much they appreciated our being a counterbalancing voice to the hate on the other side. Amongst these people was a large contingent of the Patriot Guard. Now, you know what a lot of these folks look like the non-bikers… they’re wearing their “pirate gear” (as my boss humorously refers to biker clothes!) And a lot of the guys are big and bearded. We found it hilarious, because we had these 3 little cute College girls who were protesting with us, and these big huge biker guys were chatting with them, it just looked really funny!

Anyway, we could see these Patriot Guards keep looking over at the Westboro Baptist people and getting more and more agitated. Finally, one of the biker says “Watch this…” and 6 guys jumped on their Harleys started them up, all their front tires pointing at the rectangular enclosure across the street that held the Westboro Baptist protesters.

On cue, when there was a break in the traffic, the bikers gunned their engines and streaked across the street is that they were going to run right into the enclosure! At the last second, in unison they all swung around so that their exhausts were pointing at the Westboro Baptist protesters, and slowly backed their motorcycles so the exhaust was about 8 feet away from the barricade.

All the Patriot Guard guys began to rev their engines at very high RPMs… and the noise was deafening! We laughed and cheered for several minutes as this went on, and finally the Park service came over and told them they had to move. I thought that was kind of funny, because the Park service just sat there and watched for a while, just to let the Patriot Guard guys do their thing before they called them off.

You guys are great. I have a huge degree of respect for your organization and what they do. God bless all of you…

It’s the LT. Dan Band. (from his character, LT Dan in Forest Gump) Sinise is a class act by far, he’s done videos to help with post deployment depression & suicide and frequently comes to military posts to play with his band. Though I’ve never seen his performances, I have a lot of respect for Mr. Sinise.

I was in Yakoska Japan, And I was raised 35 miles south of Kent State Oh. I know the place well and I can tell you that the social meme about Kent is not at all what occured.

The National Guard was goaded into reluctant action.
Kids in the dorms were filling dixie cups with redi crete and hucking that at them when they ran out of rocks to throw.The Guard shot over their heads as a warning, but sadly bullets come down, and 4 kids who werent even protesting caught some 30.06
One of them lived like 4 miles from my house
