He has done a lot of extraordinary work over the last decade and deserves all the praise he gets.

Watch: Gary Sinise Foundation Marks a Decade of Serving Military Veterans, First Responders
The Gary Sinise Foundation is marking its ten-year anniversary of serving active duty servicemen, veterans, and first responders, and is celebrating its recently launched mental health services network.
Earlier this year, the Forrest Gump and Apollo 13 actor created the Gary Sinise Foundation Avalon Network, which offers care to veterans and first responders experiencing post traumatic stress, traumatic brain injuries, and substance abuse. By 2023, the organization is expected to have ten traumatic brain injury treatment sites and ten post-traumatic growth sites around the country.
The Home Depot co-founders Bernie Marcus and Arthur Blank both donated $20 million to help create the network.
Hollywood star Gary Sinise created the foundation in 2011 with the mission to provide help to service personnel and their families. The non-profit group has raised $194 million in donations and revenue from 2011 to 2019, raising $42 million in 2019 alone, according to publicly available financial statements.
This guy is a treasure.
