  • While Obama gives Hillary-donating celebs medals, actor Gary Sinise spends Thanksgiving in Afgh[tr]

    You would be hard-pressed to find an American who does more for the troops than actor Gary Sinise, the tireless advocate who, through the Gary Sinise Foundation, spends much of his time looking out for their interests. Sinise spent his Thanksgiving at Kandahar Air Force Base in Afghanistan, serving Thanksgiving dinner to U.S. forces. …you know, something presidents used to do in America, as one social media user noted. Not that President Barack Obama can be faulted, he had his plate full this week handing out Medal of Freedom awards to top-tier celebrity supporters like Ellen DeGeneres, Robert De Niro,...

    Uses his stardom to ‘do a little more’ Gary Sinise began providing free performances and dinners for Vietnam veterans — what he called “vets nights” — in the late 1970s, long before he was a household name thanks to his Oscar-nominated portrayal of the man who loses his legs in the jungles of Vietnam. Even before he portrayed Lt. Dan Taylor, the Vietnam commander saved by Forrest Gump from certain death in the 1994 best picture winner, the Chicago native and co-founder of the iconic Steppenwolf Theater knew he had to do something to give back to America’s heroes. “I...

    Word is now circulating around the Catholic world that conservative hero Gary Sinise, along with Fox News anchor Bret Baier, both publicly professed faithful Catholics, cancelled their appearances at a Legatus Summit at the last minute under pressure from the LGBT crowd. Legatus is the organization of Catholic CEOs founded by pizza billionaire Tom Monaghan to advance the spirituality of Catholic men and women in the higher echelons of American business. The primary work of Legatus and its members is the increased holiness of the members and spreading the gospel within corporate America. Certainly there is a conservative tinge to...
  • Fox News’ Bret Baier, Actor Gary Sinise Cancel on Catholic Group after Gay Gripes

    FOX News Channel's chief political anchor, Bret Baier, has shown himself to have a thinner skin than might be guessed from his on-air persona. Baier has caved in to pressure from the homosexual activist group ‘Good as You’ to back out of a speaking engagement at a mainstream Catholic conference. Also backing out for the same reason was Hollywood actor Gary Sinise of Forrest Gump and CSI: NY fame. The gay activist complaint is a repeat of last year when actor Bob Newhart was successfully bullied into backing out of his speaking engagement at the Legatus Summit. Legatus, which was...

    Well known for his portrayal of “Lt. Dan” in “Forrest Gump,” actor and musician Gary Sinise was named an honorary U.S. Marine during a ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Friday, according to a statement released by the U.S. Marine Corps website. “This was one of the most extraordinary nights,” Sinise said in the statement. “I was totally surprised by what the general gave me tonight. I’m humbled, shocked, moved and motivated to keep standing up for our men and women and giving back to them.” Gen. James F. Amos, the Marine Corps’ commandant, hosted the ceremony at his home at...

    “Not for fame or reward; not for place or for rank; not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity; but in simple obedience to duty, as they understood it. These men suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died.”   Today’s Memorial Day post is dedicated to our country’s fallen heroes; the 1.4 million men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in wars waged across centuries in order to preserve the principles of freedom and liberty. And to brighten your day I offer a couple rays of light into our sometimes very cloudy skies:  two amateur videos that...

    American Thinker ^ | February 26, 2012 | Matthew S. Harrison
    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...
  • 2011 Candlelight Processional (Disneyland vanity)

    12/05/2011 12:48:38 AM PST · by kingu · 12 replies
    Tonight, my wife and I attended the Candlelight Processional at Disneyland, a yearly tradition at the park that dates back to the days when Walt was still with us. Choirs from around Southern California participated, and the host was Gary Sinise. It is frustrating for my wife and I sometimes when we go to the park. The generic 'happy holidays' or 'come celebrate the holidays' or 'Believe in the magic of the holidays' are the typical Disney themes presented to guests. In fact, while we were standing in line to get seats, the nightly tree lighting happened, where the crowd...

    Actor Gary Sinise is easily recognizable for his role as Det. Mac Taylor on "CSI:NY" as well as for his Oscar-nominated performance as Lt. Dan in "Forrest Gump." But Veterans Day provides a chance to look at another, arguably more important, role that he plays -- as advocate for U.S. military men and women. In addition to having received an Emmy ("George Wallace") and a Golden Globe ("Truman"), Sinise is the recipient of the 2008 Presidential Citizens Medal -- one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a civilian, second only to the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Through...

The patriotic actor was there for the second annual Lt. Dan Weekend, a gathering of military personnel and veterans who were severely wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    There’s a memorial in Brooklyn that honors all the first responders that were killed on Sept. 11 called the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance. There are 417 faces of first responders that were lost that day. Back in 2006, they had completed about one-third of that memorial and they ran out of money. A firefighter friend of mine took me out to see it and I offered to try and help them raise the additional money to complete the memorial. They liked that idea, so we put a concert together at Brooklyn College where my band, Lieutenant Dan Band, played, and...
