Gary Sinise couldn’t prove himself anymore of a hero when he does something worthy of praise. He has been an advocate of strong support networks for soldiers and veterans, donating in the form of aid for those who require it.

Reputation as a truly great man is beyond any doubt as he seems determined to go down as one of the nicest men to ever grace Hollywood.

Tucson native and former Green Beret Sergeant Caleb Brewer almost lost all hope when both of his legs were severed in Afghanistan. Once he returned home, he faced difficulty moving on with his life. Thankfully Sinise offered him a glimpse of hope.

In 2012, Sergeant 1st Class Caleb Brewer joined the Green Berets, however while on deployment in 2015 he was seriously injured losing both his legs. Afterwards he also suffered from blood clots, infections, and a traumatic brain injury.

Despite all the trauma he managed to survive. In 2016 Brewer decided to retire. He is now aged 31 and lives in Tucson, Arizona. Initially he though struggled when it came to restoring normality to his life considering the change had been drastic and wasn’t easy to adapt.

Once Gary Sinise heard of his situation he immediately took action. The Forrest Gump star made sure that suitable housing would be something that Caleb didn’t have to worry about.

The actor reached out a helping hand through the Gary Sinise Foundation, encouraging Caleb to apply to the RISE (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) program. This program helps to build specially-adapted smart homes and adapted vehicles for wounded vets.

In wasn’t take long before Brewer was approved for a smart home in Tucson, to assist in his every day life. On February 6, 2019 his home was ready.

The house included a smartphone-controlled functions such as checking who’s at the door, adjusting the volume of the stereo and opening and shutting the blinds, as well as tilted mirrors, pocket doors, and a host of other features.

Brewer said: “It’s incredibly overwhelming in a good way. It doesn’t feel real. I never would’ve expected it in a million years.”

Gary Sinise never ceases to amaze with his contributions to those heroes who need help the most but are sometimes too proud to ask for it. Most vets have spent the majority of their lives giving everything in sacrifice to their country.
