Ross was injured by an IED during his second deployment in Afghanistan in March, 2011. The injuries he sustained caused both of his legs to be amputated, and part of his pelvic bone was removed. Ross made it through more than 240 surgeries, and each subsequent recovery period, over a three-year period.

The Gary Sinise Foundation provided Ross with a home in southern California in August, 2015, as a recipient of a R.I.S.E. custom Smart Home. He shares his story in this video:

Sinise has long been a supporter of veterans’ organizations, and frequently performs on USO tours at military bases worldwide, playing in his band, the Lt. Dan Band, named after his Forrest Gump character.

Sinise won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1997 television movie, George Wallace, a Golden Globe Award for the 1995 HBO award-winning movie, Truman, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the movie, Forrest Gump. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
