Actor Gary Sinise awarded Walk of Fame star, praised for pro-military activism

Actor Gary Sinise was honored this week with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, not just for his acting roles in films and TV, but also for his wonderful and important work for our military veterans and our troops serving still today.

Sinese, best known as “Lt. Dan” in the hit movie “Forrest Gump,” now stars as Agent Jack Garrett on the CBS crime drama “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.”

But the actor is also well-known for his tireless work for our troops, Fox Insider reported.

As he introduced the 62-year-old actor, fellow actor and life-long friend Joe Mantegna said, “There’s no living person in our industry that does more for our military than Gary Sinise.”

Using his “Forrest Gump” character as an inspiration, Sinese started the “Lt. Dan Band” and has toured the world to perform for our troops and veterans. He is also the head of the Gary Sinise Foundation, which funds programs to help veterans.

Sinese has also done much for the RISE program, which reconstructs homes to accommodate wounded warriors when they return home.

The award-winning actor’s work for the military has brought comparisons to the work by famed comedic actor Bob Hope who for decades served the U.S. military with the United Service Organization (USO).

Many accolades came over Twitter as the actor and philanthropist claimed his star.
