Gary Sinise is known for helping veterans in the United States. Ever since he starred on the movie Forrest Gump, where he played the role of a paralyzed Vietnam veteran with mental problems and alcohol addiction, he started to have this sort of obsession about helping out those that did a real service to the country. He has been working with organizations and raising funds, all while creating his own foundation for the sake of veterans. I have also written other articles about Gary Sinise advocating for the veterans, but he is a different case.
We are in 2019 and it has been 25 years ever since Gary Sinise started his mission in helping the veterans. He has never ceased on helping the former soldiers to live their best lives. When he starred in the movie Forrest Gump he got an award from DAV which stands for Disabled American Veterans and ever since then he has been working with the same agency to make sure that the veterans get the right props and that they are acknowledged for the service they delivered. Since most of the people that went in Vietnam never got the recognition that the government promised them, at least someone else is doing something to make that change.
Once he did the movie he started realizing that there are more and more veterans who are confessing about the true conditions of their lives and many of them who have seen the movie have also been able to relate to it to a really deep extent. That is why the Gary Sinise Foundation was created in 2011 to raise capital and help veterans all over the country. Most of them are still homeless for the moment and all the dreams they had are broken.
At the foundation, they make their best that the veterans and their families get the praise that they deserve. Just recently I have written an article about how Gary Sinise took a couple of planes and did a trip all paid for the families of many veterans, dead and alive. It was a hell of an experience and I remember that everyone on that flight was so happy as people were all uniting with a common cause, struggle and stand. Now 25 years in this mission Gary Sinise doesn’t even plan to stop.
And his name has not been forgotten. He is continuously being mentioned and praised for his actions but he is humble enough to smile and just keep quiet about everything. After all, he who helps other people with a pure heart doesn’t have to show off or brag about. It is much better-keeping silence sometimes and let other people praise you for your actions. You will get your props one day if you are true to what you do. The point is all in not giving up and doing something good with an open and sincere heart and soul.
What a good man you are Gary Sinise! After reading this if you support the troops pass it on
