    While Sinise is fondly remembered as veteran Lt. Dan Taylor in the 1994 film classic "Forrest Gump," it's the actor's tireless work on behalf of the armed forces that continues to earn him so much praise. "There's only one Gary Sinise. He's in a class all by himself," says Brandon Millett, co-founder of the festival, adding that the actor and rocker is definitely the "Bob Hope of this generation. That's what a lot of folks have called him. And it's so completely authentic."

    I went to the Rod Stewart/Stevie Nicks concert last night at the Hollywood Bowl. I was surprised to hear him dedicate "Rhythm of my Heart" to the troops fighting around the world. He mentioned the third conflict ongoing in Libya. He said that once again soldiers for the U.S., Great Britain, Canada and others, but "mostly our two countries" were once again inn harm's way. He said he takes his hat off to any service members in the audience, and we rally owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who served form WWI to today for defending our freedom. The...

But they have not yet mentioned any times or particulars. Either way, we’ll be in the Circle. If you want read...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Thousands of soldiers hoping to receive a holiday package from home may be disappointed this year. Troops support programs report that fewer packages are being sent this year than ever before. Popular online package provider Treats for Troops says the number of soldiers being sponsored through their Foster-A-Soldier program has fallen by nearly 25 percent from last year. "People are struggling to pay their bills and worried about making it a Merry Christmas for their own families," says TFT founder Deborah Crane. "But I am heartsick thinking about the thousands of soldiers who have registered with...

Part of Longview Independent School District, the middle school is designing a poster featuring active military service members.

A mock-up of the poster featured three servicemembers, each related to school faculty members. The posters will be sold to businesses, and any profits will be divided between school programs and...

    The lionesses of IraqSince the American Revolution, U.S. women have served in different capacities at wartimes. It wasn't until 1978, however, with the dissolution of the Woman's Army Corps that women regularly served in the same units as men in the U.S. Army. They were legally and officially dispatched in combat situations since only 1994 – thanks to Defense Secretary Les Aspin, who removed "substantial risk of capture" as a ground for exclusion of women in warfare. Still, they are prohibited from serving in infantry, artillery and armor branches, as well on submarines, special operations and forces (like the Navy...

    I just got this in an email and had gotten the same thing about a week or two ago, and I went to the website and picked out and sent a card. They have a selection of about 10? cards and a variety of messages you can pick to put into the card..AND, if memory serves - I think you can type your own message instead of using the prepared ones. It'd be nice for all of us to do this and swamp the GI's and the server with cards. God knows, they need the support! MESSAGE: Just Say Thanks!...

    NOTE: Below is an e-mail from a soldier, Josh Lomen, who is 24 years old. By the time he was 21, he had two combat tours under his belt and had made Sergeant. He and others like him are the heroes your kids like to read about. The only difference is that they are real. They may not have degrees from Harvard, but they can take an order without question and recite from memory the Army values. They may not have seen the seven wonders, but they can save or take your life. They are not afraid to cry for...
