Hello Everyone!

I just wanted you all to know that tonight on FOX News at 9 p.m. ET, there will be a
1 hour special with Gary Sinise.  Gary and I email back and forth and he truly cares
for our troops who serve our country.

This past July while my son was stationed in Iraq Gary visited the camp he was at.
Although Jer didn’t get to meet him, he was working.  Gary Sinise had a good friend
of his following him and tape his encounters with our troops.  He asked FOX to broadcast this to get
the word out to all Americans about what a wonderful job our men and women who
serve the US are doing and the good they are doing.  So many times all you see in the
news is the bad, well Gary is making sure the good is shown.

I have no idea what channel this will be on in your area of the country, but just look up
FOX News and if you are in the East it’s at 9 p.m.

Gary is so devoted to our sons and daughters.  He is a true American in every sense.
And yes, we really do email each other.  He cares about what my son is doing and
how our family is coping.  He thinks nothing of jumping on a plane after working all
week and going to a base to play with his Lt. Dan Band for our guys and girls.  It’s
call the Lt. Dan Band after his character in the movie “Forest Gump”.

I hope this finds you all well, and remember to watch this very special, special!

    Trying to contact Lt. Dan or Gary Sinise for my son that is in Baghdad PV2 Nick Daniels. He will be soon leaving & going to his base in Hawaii then home soon for a visit! But my son fell in love with the Forest Gump movie so much that he & I always quoted lines from it. And my name being Ginnie, he would say in his phone calls home that he loves his Ginnie! He even talks so much like Forest. He even got a name tag made for his Army uniform Gump! The cafeteria workers in Hawaii love to see him come in and hear him talk like Forest & kids about Lt. Dan. So I would love to get Gary’s address somehow to visit my son. It would be such a surprise and he would need this being first time in the Army. And one day maybe his disabled father & I can save the money to go see him in Hawaii.
