Tom Hanks joins veterans in heartfelt tribute to Gary Sinise for his charity work

Hollywood actor Gary Sinise is known for the many ways in which he honors and gives back to the U.S. military and veterans.

The Forrest Gump actor established his own organization called ‘The Gary Sinise Foundation’and through that he has been able to donate millions of dollars to soldiers, veterans, first responders, and their families.

He really is a shining example of someone who works hard to help those in less fortunate circumstances than himself.

The best part about all his charity work is that people are finally starting to know about it. Though Sinise has never sought praise for his generous acts, it has become common knowledge that he puts others first. That’s probably why many of his actor friends came together to thank him for his work, via a surprise video that also features veterans who have benefitted from his foundation.

In celebration of the Feb 12 release of Sinise’s book, “Grateful American”, the actor was surprised by the touching video, which included messages from such people as Tom Hanks and Ron Howard.

“Your commitment, your dedication, you are awesome,” Howard said, while Tim Allen explained, “You motivate other people.”

Fittingly, it was Tom Hanks who ended the video, saying “Thanks, Lieutenant Dan!” with a cheerful smile.

It wasn’t just celebrities who took the time to sing Sinise’s praises, however, but also many of the veterans whose lives Sinise’s foundation has improved.

“We must do all we can to extend our hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more,” says Gary Sinise on his foundation website.
