Famous actor Gary Sinise worked in the iconic film, Forrest Gump. Sinise won’t be only remembered for his characters in a movie, but also for his love and caring for those whose life changed after they lost one of their members who worked hard to serve the nation, the fallen veterans.
According to Fox News report, Sinise sent more than 600 Gold Star Families to Disney World this month.
Sinise is the founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation. He started it in 2011 to help serve the “children of fallen military heroes,” according to the foundation’s website.
Sinise posted on his Twitter account the announcement with a picture of parents and children on a plane headed to the amusement park.

“The holidays are a particularly difficult time for a child who’s lost a parent. For the next four days’ we’re going to treat them very special as they deserve.”
