The Villages in Florida is a special place that many veterans call home. That’s why Gary Sinise went there. He wanted to entertain these veterans and personally thank them for their service to our nation.

The Apollo 13 star, who also has done full USO tours, raises about $30 million each year for the Gary Sinise Foundation which builds home for our wounded warriors among other charitable endeavors for our veterans.

Veterans Services

Gary Sinise wants more Americans to step up and honor and help our veterans. After all, we owe our freedom to those who served in the military. We cannot properly repay that that debt of gratitude.

“If every person in every neighborhood around the country took a little bit of responsibility for patting these folks on the back, all the problems that we hear about with regards to veterans not getting services or falling through the cracks would disappear,” the “CSI:NY” actor told People.

“If citizens would look at their freedom providers in a little bit different way.”
