Gary Sinise AKA Lieutenant Dan Takes Children of Soldiers to Disney

Gary Sinise – the actor who played Lieutenant Dan in “Forrest Gump” – recently took over 1,000 children of fallen soldiers to Walt Disney World.

The famous actor and musician who starred in “Forrest Gump”, “The Green Mile”, and “Apollo 13” is one of many celebrities who use their resources and fame to help those in need. He established the Gary Sinise Foundation which is an organization used to honor and help military veterans around the country. He works to serve the needs of veterans, first responders, their families, and their communities.

The foundation is built around Sinise’s words: “While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our nation’s defenders, we can always do a little more.”

A program called “Snowball Express” launched in 2017. This program honors fallen soldiers by taking their children to the Most Magical Place on Earth – Disney World – for FREE!

More than 1,750 children were flown to Orlando for a 5-night stay. The children and their surviving parents received “we remember” pins upon their arrival and 600 flags were on display to recognize those who sacrificed their lives.
