Actor Gary Sinise has launched a charity to aid servicemen and their families.
The Forrest Gump star, who was born into a military family, dedicates much of his time to helping troops, and is an active supporter of war veterans' organisations.
And now the actor, who played a Vietnam war vet in the hit 1994 film, has decided to set up the Gary Sinise Foundation, which will team up with organisations including Hope For The Warriors and United Service Organization (Uso) to help those in need.
Sinise says, "We're a staff-specific mission. We'll be working with a lot of different organisations."
