Sinise has most recently been praised for his over decade long commitment of bringing families of fallen US Troops on a special trip to Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, FL called “The Snowball Express“. The Gary Sinise Foundation helps cover costs for transportation, lodging, food, and fun activities for hundreds of families of fallen soldiers and sailors every year around the holidays, helping them to make new lasting memories together and reminding each and every one of them that they are not alone and they are cared for and loved.
Congratulations to Gary Sinise for receiving this high honor and for the hard work he and the Gary Sinise Foundation are doing for our veterans and their families. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Co. for the latest news about our favorite celebrities!
