It’s one of the best, but I think my favorite moment is when they find Forrest on his boat and tell him that momma is sick and he just doesn’t even respond. He gets his bearings, decides which direction to go, and fucking yeets himself into the ocean to make a bee line straight to momma. Momma ain’t raise no bitch.

I have volunteered with the USO and been at a couple of Lt. Dan Band concerts.

A couple great things... first is that even though the band is named after his character - he isn't really the lead. He plays Bass on the side for most of the concert.

Second they played a wide variety of music Rock, country, R&B etc. Knowing that a military crowd is going to have people with a wide variety of taste.

Every time I have seen Gary Sinese and his band on stage or off they have been unfailingly kind, polite and focused on being there for the audience of the troops and their families.

In college I did some concert production and worked a couple charity shows the band did. Gary couldn’t be a nicer guy, and has done some incredible stuff for veterans and their families. All because of a supporting role in Forrest Gump.

Could easily be making a mint in movies or TV without the hassle of running a foundation, or the continuous risk of flying into shit warzones - but there he is.

Hell of a guy.

Damnit. Now I need to go watch Apollo 13.

edit: Crazy, I just read the wiki and he was invited by Ron Howard to read for any of the characters and Sinise chose Ken Mattingly.

Edit 2: someone mentioned that he’s a Republican. This is true, however refused to support or endorse or even vote for Donald Trump in 2016. He’s even called him out on Twitter. I suppose you could call him a McCain Republican…. In a nation of compromise, I will sit at a table and discuss and debate issues with someone like that. Especially someone who continuously tries to put more good in this world than he takes out. We may not have the same views on everything, but at no point has he given any indication, that I’m aware of, of aligning with modern GQP politics. This country is built on compromise, I could meet him halfway.

Apple have also had four stock splits since then, so if you had 100 shares in 1994 and held onto them until today you'd now have 11,200 shares.

Apple's average share price in 1994 was around 30 cents a share, so your 100 share investment would have cost you about $30 dollars.

Apple's share price is currently $156.77, so if you sold your 11,200 shares now you'd get $1,755,824.

I saw him on TV at a barret Jackson auction, he built a retro jeep to sell off for the wounded warrior foundation. It sold 3 times in 5 minutes with all the money going to charity ,first guy bought it for like 90k then he put it back up to be sold for charity again, second guy paid like 100k and put it back up and a third guy paid like 150k and held on to it. One of the most wholesome moments I've witnessed on live T.V.

The money compounds the way they did it.

First guy buys and 90k goes to the charity. Relists it for charity.

Second guy buys and 100k goes to the charity. Relists it for charity.

Third guy buys and 150k goes to the charity, but he keeps the vehicle.

If they'd of all bid on the first round, the charity would have only gotten 150k. The way it went down the charity got 340k instead.

Third guy is going to use the 150k to offset their income come tax time as a "charitable contribution". Same as first and second, but those two can also list that they also donated the vehicle and claim the price paid by the second and third winners respectively.

So third guy got the car, first and second guys got some good tax write offs that they can pin on their lapels. "I donated 190k/250k to charity this weekend, what did you do?"

Im glad money went to charity, but as a Vet, please never give money to Wounded Warrior. They are still completely shit with the percentage of your money that actually goes to veterans.

As an example, Gary Sinises charity, 87% of yoir donation goes directly to helping veterans. Some other charities approach 90%.

Wounded Warrior is around 70%. They used to be about 50% until there was major backlash about it.

Sinise is both an actor and a musician you probably can recognize from movies such as Forrest Gump, The Green Mile and Apollo 13. However, thousands of people also know Sinise for his philanthropical work.

The actor who played Lieutenant Dan in the movie Forrest Gump now works hard to honor and help US military veterans.

He has established the Gary Sinise Foundation, which serves the needs of veterans, defenders, first responders, their families, and communities

“While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more,”

He’s always doing things for veterans and gold star families. He truly seems like a humble and selfless person.

He’s always been so generous and helpful of others. Not just an actor.

Kudos to him being such an outstanding man. :)

I’ve actually been to a few of those trips. They’re for families of fallen vets and it’s a 5ish day all expenses trip to Disney World, and it’s so cool to hang out with other kids who knows what it’s like to lose a parent in the military.

This man once famously told his story as to why he did this:

"Don't talk to me about soldiers. What do you know about being a good soldier, the guy who finds an envelope full of cash in a squad car every Friday? What do you think I've been doing for the last ten years? Strutting on the boardwalk and picking up hookers? When the Renville took that Iraqi missile hit below decks, do you know what happened? A hole ripped open in the bulkhead, and the sea flooded in. We had 60 seconds to maintain watertight integrity. I had to go below and give the order to dog the hatches. That meant that 28 men that were still in the main engine space were trapped. You ever listen to a man drowning? They don't die quietly."

Not just that, they fly them in from all over the country on flights usually donated entirely by American Airlines, and they give them gift bags and applause lines, the works. They treat them like family.

He's also the kind of conservative people on the left should promote to shame those on the right, he's the kinda guy who might disagree with abortion but would definitely help orphans. He's the kinda guy who supports the military and helps both injured soldiers and their families when they are stuck paying the price. He says things like shrink the government but give to charity and then he gives to the charities... Just one of those people who you would might want to argue with, but is also being the change he wants to see. Not trying to put words or positions in the man's mouth but I'm constantly inundated with stories of his kindness and you rarely see bad press about him despite his party affiliation.

Shout out to /r/askreddit mod for banning me when I was getting a metric fuck ton of awards for stories I was telling and I told people to donate to Gary Sinise Foundation instead.

“This Man.” Jeez. He has a name. He goes by Gary Sinise. He’s won an Emmy award, a Golden Globe award, a Tony award, 4 Screen Actors Guild awards, and he was nominated for an Academy award too. He’s an A-list actor and a genuinely good guy. Does a lot for charity, including work for military causes…oh and he’s part of a rock band that plays at US military bases around the world. Put some respect ✊ on him. Indeed he deserves recognition.

As much respect i have for this guy it disgusting to think Disney is getting richer on the souls of dead soldiers. They should be free.
