"I got involved with our wounded veterans and just feel like I've been embraced by the military community," Mr. Sinise said earlier this week. "I feel very comfortable there and met some extraordinary people. I feel honored to know some of these folks. They are truly exceptional people."
"I was thrilled last year to be able to support my friend Sela Ward and her outstanding effort with Hope Village by bidding on a generous item donated by Brett Favre and giving it to one of America's heroes," Sinise said by email on Monday.
