On radio this morning, conservative actor and musician Gary Sinise joined Glenn to talk about a wonderful partnership he has forged between the Gary Sinise Foundation and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation called Building for America’s Bravest. The project is aimed at honoring and supporting our nation’s heroes.
“I have a great partnership between my foundation, Gary Sinise Foundation, and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in New York,” Gary explained. “And we created a program called Building for America's Bravest. It's a home building program to address the special home needs of our very, very severely wounded warriors. And we have concerts going all over the country. I have a great band, Gary Sinise and Lieutenant Dan Band. We go all over the world doing shows for our military and veteran communities. And for the Building for America's Bravest program. And one of our warriors, Travis Green, is somebody we're building for in the San Antonio area and we have a concert on Friday night at the Lila Cockrell Theater. We want everybody in that area to come out and support this great American.”
Gary went on to talk about how he has really began to devote himself to helping veterans and their families.
“At the Gary Sinise Foundation our charge is to serve and honor the needs of our military men and women, our First Responders, our wounded, our gold star families. And I do that on a very, very regular basis. I leave tonight to go to D.C. to do some events. Then I'm in San Antonio on Friday for a concert there for Travis Green. Then on Saturday I'm in Dallas for a big event there called Skyball, which is a big military support event,” he said. “And I'm just constantly on the road doing this stuff right now. CSI New York got cancelled. So, you know, I'm spending all my time on this. To come on your show and to be able to talk about Travis Green, what he's given for his country and to encourage people in San Antonio to buy some tickets and come on out. It's not that expensive and the money goes to help support this great American who's given his limbs for our country and he's got a family and we want to help him out as we want to help so many of our wounded. You can look at the Building for America's Bravest program on the Gary Sinise Foundation website.”
For those who will not be able to attend Gary’s upcoming events in Texas, there are still ways for you to get involved in this great cause.
“You can donate at GarySiniseFoundation.org. Like I said, we're doing these homes all over. I've done 20 concerts in the last 18, 19 months just for the wounded. I have three more concerts this year for our Building for America's Bravest program,” Gary said. “We're going to chip away next year and do as many as we can. This is just, you know, this is an important part of my life and I feel we always have to recognize our veterans for what they do for us. We have to keep our military strong.”
“Gary, thank you so much,” Glenn said. “And thank you for all of your service, and, quite honestly, just the way you seem to live your life. You're a decent, decent man and we appreciate it.”
