Is there a better American than Gary Sinise?

I have seen about 4-5 TV stories about this guy and what he does. Who would've thought that LT Dan would have found this as his calling?

Gary Sinise is a friggin' boss!! One of my favourite twitter follows

That's tremendous stuff there. Hat tip to the guy for doing all he does.

Yes. Millions of them.

What am I supposed to be looking at on this link? The bestest American making material?

Not really, just that his charity is pretty damn awesome. He started a foundation following a USO tour a couple of years ago and has since spent a ton of time raising money and donating time to a cause that matters to me. Probably matters less to others, but he is doing it the right way, not grandstanding for himself... just quietly making a big difference to a lot of people.

There probably are some better Americans out there, but not many.

Sorry if my comment came off snarky and assholish.

I just don't care for the thread title.

I don't qualify as the evidence you quoted shows.
