Less than 2% of America's population volunteer to defend it

That's 1 in 50 citizens


In 2012, the Gary Sinise Foundation began building specially adapted custom smart homes for America’s severely wounded veterans through its Building for America’s Bravest partner program. Each home features automated amenities to ease the daily challenges these heroes face. In 2013, the Gary Sinise Foundation expanded these efforts by establishing its R.I.S.E. (Restoring Independence & Supporting Empowerment) program.

Here is another part of the Gary Sinise Foundation:

 
First Responders Outreach

The Gary Sinise Foundation is recognizing and supporting America’s firefighters, police, and EMTs through its First Responders Outreach program. These men and women are indispensable to maintaining the safety of our communities. By providing equipment and training, the Foundation is ensuring these heroes perform to the best of their abilities.
