Our Veterans put everything on the line to protect our freedom. We may never be able to repay them for their sacrifice, but we can show them just how much we appreciate all that they've done. Everyone can do something to let Veterans know how much we appreciate their service. Visit www.volunteer.va.gov. What will you do?
Award-winning actor Gary Sinise is probably remembered most for his roles as Lt. Dan from the movie "Forrest Gump" and Detective Mac Taylor on CBS-TV's "CSI: New York." But did you know he also works tirelessly on behalf of our active duty military and Veterans? In addition to touring with the United Service Organizations (USO) and entertaining troops with his "Lt. Dan Band," he also volunteers his time to help the VA communicate to Veterans and the public through Public Service Announcements (PSA's) like this one.
