“Careers, like rockets, don’t always take off on schedule. The key is to keep working the engines.”
Gary Sinise

“When I thought about that, I remembered something I have heard in church. We each have a purpose in life, and if we’re serving God, following him, living out God’s calling and purposes for our life, then we can have faith that God is leading us, and even difficult times can turn out all right. God can cause all things to work together for good.”
Gary Sinise, Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service

“How can I make a difference in restoring what’s been lost? How can I help make sure our veterans are never treated that way again?”
Gary Sinise, Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service
