Gary Sinise [pr: seh-NIECE] gave nearly 2000 children from Gold Star families a week-long vacation to Disney World.
His annual Snowball Express supports families of fallen military heroes. The program pays all expenses for the kids and their surviving parent or guardian. American Airlines arranged 12 chartered planes on Saturday from 26 cities to fly the Gold Star families to Orlando.
Snowball Express started more than a decade ago. A deployed soldier wrote his wife a letter to be opened only if he died in battle. His one wish was that she take their children to Disney. Gary Sinise honors that wish each year and for thousands of kids. (NBC, Dallas)
