News station KUSI in San Diego is reporting that actor Gary Sinise has come to the aid of a wounded war veteran who has endured more than 240 surgeries.

Marine Staff Sgt. Jason Ross was injured by an IED during his second deployment in Afghanistan in March, 2011. Both of his legs were amputated, along with part of his pelvic bone.

Staff Sgt. Ross has undergone over 240 surgeries over the three years since the incident. He lives in southern California in a home provided for him by the Gary Sinise Foundation in August, 2015.

Sinise, best known as the star of "CSI: NY" and "Forrest Gump," is the founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation. It was established in 2011 and describes its mission this way:  

To serve and honor our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs that entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities. Of its many outreach efforts, the Gary Sinise Foundation is building custom Smart Homes for severely wounded veterans, serving hearty meals to deploying troops and hosting spirit-boosting festivals for patients, families and medical staff at military hospitals. 

The Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation and Semper Fi Foundation have also honored Staff Sgt. Ross by awarding his two daughters a scholarship that will guarantee funding for their college.

"I'm trying to do what I can to entertain and support our military," Sinise said in an interview. "It's an important thing.We can never do enough for our veterans."
