Gary Sinise Flies Families of Fallen Soldiers to Disney World Again

Hollywood star, Gary Sinise, has once again partnered with American Airlines this year to offer an all-expenses paid trip to Walt Disney World for family members of fallen heroes on the “Snowball Express”.

The incredible actor who once played “Lt. Dan” in Forrest Gump, a Vietnam veteran who lost both his legs in the war, is known to always go out of his way to ensure vets and the families of fallen soldiers are well taken care of.

On its website, The Sinise Foundation explained, “The holidays can be especially challenging for grieving families. Each December, we host a five-day experience for 1,750+ children of the fallen and their surviving parent or guardian. As a therapeutic retreat with a blend of fun and inspiring programs, these families can lean on their peers for support.”

The operation included families from 87 different U.S. cities flying on 13 different charter flights to get to Orlando International Airport, according to a media release

The Senior Vice President of Operations at American, David Seymour, said, “This event highlights the caring nature of the American team.

“I’m honored to work with so many generous colleagues, not only those who have volunteered their time to fly and serve the families in the air, but those who have spent countless hours coordinating gate-side celebrations in scores of airports around our system.

“Gary Sinise Foundation Snowball Express is a remarkable program that continues to impact Gold Star families, and it is our deep privilege to partner with the foundation to honor them. As a company, and as a nation, we can never forget those that made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation.”

Gary Sinise is truly an angel sent down to watch over veterans and the families of fallen soldiers as he goes and beyond to make sure they all get the help and support they need. God bless this amazing man.
