REMEMBER the Fallen. . . HONOR those who Serve. . . TEACH our children the value of Freedom.

Welcome to The Gary Sinise Foundation's Wreaths Across America Page. 

The Mission of the Gary Sinise Foundation is to serve our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. We do this by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.

The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of a forty-year advocate for our nation's defenders, actor Gary Sinise. Its outreach supports those who sacrifice to defend our country: active duty, veterans, first responders, and their loved ones. While our mission is broad, we've created key programs to show gratitude for our American heroes through entertainment, family support, and acts of appreciation, these include: R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment); Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band; Invincible Spirit Festivals; Relief & Resiliency Outreach; First Responders Outreach; Serving Heroes; Arts & Entertainment Outreach; Ambassador Council; Soaring Valor and most recently, Snowball Express.

To learn more about these programs and others, please visit www.garysinisefoundation.org/

Life is a Journey Not a Destination

While Arlington was the destination for the wreaths, it was the experience of the journey down as part of the convoy and the opportunity to talk to individuals along the way or those waiting in line with me behind the trucks that will stay with me for life...
