He is absolutely the best. I watch all of his reruns and will watch the documentary. Thanks for providing the schedule.
Late Btt for the show.
Here is a message from my friend, Beverly Perlson:
This warmed my heart and thought it would warm yours too! Gary Sinise is a great American Patriot and history will recognize him as one of the greatest, I have no doubt. His genuine love and respect for our Troops means the world to them and to all Americans. Gary Sinise is the Bob Hope of this generation and I am so very thankful for all he has done to lighten the hearts of our brave men and women as they serve in a war zone so far away from home. Gary reminds our Heroes they are loved and revered and that Americans are so very grateful for their service and sacrifice!
I've had the distinct pleasure to meet Gary several times and with each meeting, I have no doubt I am in the company of one of the greatest American Patriots of our time. He is one of the most down to earth gentlemen I have ever met and he never ceases to amaze me how dedicated he is to our Troops. Once, in the courtyard of the Pentagon where he performed for wounded Soldiers from Walter Reed, I watched as he sat in the hot sun to autograph whatever the Soldiers brought to him for signature. He did not budge until 3 hours later when all the Soldiers there had met with him and he had shaken every one of their hands. I will never forget that day and what that meant to those Wounded Warriors.
So now, it is Honorary Chief Gary Sinise, but to this mom whose Son served in this war, he will always be one of the Greatest Patriots of my lifetime!
Congratulations Chief Sinise!
With A Mother's Heart,
The Band of Mothers
I've received several emails of outrage over this latest abuse of our military by this administration. You know, I've been fighting for our Troops for a long time and I've been warning people for a long time that the very enemy our Troops are fighting has found his place within this country.
My blood boils daily over the abuse our Troops are subjected to and while folks have been distracted by the trashed economy that this administration and the Democrats have so deliberately created, the enemy within advances. I must say I am encouraged though. I am suddenly getting emails from folks outraged over the advancement of radical Islam!
You're a little late in coming, but so glad to see you're awake and aware. Here's the latest poke in your eye:
I know, I know, this was reported 5 days ago and my pot on the stove boiled over this morning with the punishment of our Warrior Sons by this sick and insane Obama run military!
There is only one solution:
Andrew Breitbart said it: We're coming to get you Obama!
November 6th! FIRE OBAMA AND HIS CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION! Get this Occupier out of our White House!
God Bless The United States Military and It is my hope we elect a leader on November 6th who is worthy to lead YOU!
Please folks, copy this link and send it to any and all military service members and their families!
Sign up to help at http://www.mvpproject.org. Reach out to your local VFW and American Legions and encourage Voter registration drives on local bases.
Let's do everything we can to help our military get their votes counted this time! Our Warriors in Afghanistan are busy watching each others backs right now so we need to help them as much as we can. Sending this link http://www.heroesvote.org/ to them and their families will help them so much!!! Everything they need to know to cast their vote is on this website.
Calling your local election office on September 18th is a big help too, ask them if they have their ballots ready to send out!
If we all pitch in and help, we will elect a new Commander-in-Chief on November 6th, one that is worthy to lead our Warriors and our nation! On November 7th, I hope we'll all be singing:
