Gary Sinise: My Life is Better Because I Became Catholic

Trisha Hoffman - published on 08/14/14

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.
