Thumbs up Gary Sinise PSA "You Die, They Win"

Every time I hear him speak it fills me with hope that there are people out there that really get- he certainly does.

If this doesn't put a lump in your throat and make you think about someone you know- served with, lived next to, fought with, laughed with and said 'farewell' to- then you're probably one of the many that went to the mall while the best this country has to offer went to war.

One of our members once said (paraphrasing here) that if you know a service member that is down, then it is up to us to reach out a helping hand and help him (or her) up.

God Bless Gary Sinise

There may not be many, but Mr. Sinise is proof that not all Hollywood actors are leftist brain-dead moonbats.
Thanks for posting that.

Mr. Sinise is a class act in every way. I had the pleasure of volunteering at a free Lt Dan Band concert on Lejeune last year; in addition to putting on one hell of a show, he and his band stayed for hours after the show until every single person who wanted an autograph got one--and I'm talking hundreds of people. He then made a point of shaking hands and chatting with every volunteer before he left; super nice guy, and not an ounce of ego or self-importance to be seen.

That would have been Mr. Magician.



Gary Sinise is a class act and hell of a good man.

Great guy

I had the pleasure of spending an evening with Gary Sinise a couple of years ago. He was very genuine, humble, and appreciative. He managed to do this without coming across as a groupie. He didn't pretend to be an expert or try to regale us with stories of his derringer do on MWR tours... He just chatted, smiled, laughed, and listened. And pictures... God, so many pictures!
When the evening was over, he did not ask if I wanted a picture with him. He volunteered that he wanted a picture with me.
I will pay to see any movie he is in. :)

What he does for the USO in spite of his breakneck schedule is absolutely insane. MUCH respect to the man, and "Thanks, Lt. Dan!"
