Gary Sinise: My Life is Better Because I Became Catholic

Actor's foundation helps wounded veterans.

Actor Gary Sinise, who has been outspoken about his and his wife’s Catholic faith, is helping injured soldiers.

In Florida last week, Sinise spoke at the Knights of Columbus 132nd Supreme Convention about his love and support for wounded warriors. With a donation from the Knights, the Gary Sinise Foundation built a Smart Home for wounded vet Kyle Hockenberry and his wife in Ohio.

Sinise says Kyle has already been through a lot after losing his legs and left arm in Afghanistan.  The home is Kyle’s comfort zone and hopes the community remembers they have a local hero living nearby.

Trisha Hoffmanis an award-winning television anchor, reporter, producer, publicist and volunteer. She was the news anchor who launched  the Morningstar.com business news segments and co-founded the award-winning Blitz Group, a media consulting firm. She is a guest contributor for High School Football America’s radio shows and website where she created the column Inspired.
