Happy Independence Day, America! What a grateful nation we should be, especially on a day like today. Megyn Kelly had a group of 14 wounded warriors on her show to inspire us all. And to remind us why we are so grateful for the freedoms we have. It is because of men like this that we can celebrate being an American on this beautiful day.
This weekend on John Stossel’s show, he talked with Gary Sinise about all the philanthropic work he’s done with the troops, as well as the patriotic themes often seen on his hit show “CSY: NY.” Gary Sinise is one fantastic American, and I never knew just how many groups he was involved with until I saw this special with Stossel.
Honestly, when does this man sleep? Either way, I salute Gary Sinise and thank God for giving us such a special human being to look up to. If each of us could only give a 10th of what Gary Sinise gives to our fellow man, the whole world would be a brighter place.
Last night, Gary Sinise was on to promote the Building Homes for Heroes program, which is now focused on building a house for SPC Brendan Marrocco, the first quadruple amputee to survive. His home will be built on Staten Island.
This is a non-partisan issue, and you cannot deny that organizations like this and folks like Gary Sinise are the true American heroes for helping those among us who gave the most of themselves during times of war. Please visit their website to check out the programs and see if there’s a way you can help out.
Gary and his “Lt. Dan Band” are going to play a benefit concert this weekend on Saturday at the St. George Theatre in Staten Island at 8PM. If you want to attend, here’s the information:

Please help these heroes help the military heroes who have sacrificed so much for us. God bless our troops, and American heroes like Gary Sinise.
Mike Huckabee had return guest, Josh Revak, on the show this weekend to play his tribute song for the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts, which take wounded warriors on big game hunts in Alaska. The fund was named after his close friend, Shane Woods, who was killed in the Iraq war. Shane grew up in Alaska, and these hunts help wounded vets transition back to civilian life, letting them feel once more like warriors.
The song he performed this weekend was one called “Sandcastles,” which he and his friend 1st Sgt. Aaron D. Jagger wrote together for a memorial service in Iraq. Before they could write another song together, Aaron was killed in an attack which also injured Josh, but Josh survived – Aaron didn’t.
100% of the proceeds for the music at JoshRevak will go to the Shane Woods Memorial Purple Heart Hunts. Please go listen to the songs there and download one or two.
