Gary Sinise is one of those guys whose names you never remember but whose face you never forget.
You’ve seen him star in dozens of classics alongside some of the world’s most famous actors, yet for some reason, his name just never sticks. Sure, your parents may know exactly who he is, but more times than not, you’re going to have to Google “who played Lieutenant Dan?” to figure out who he is.
But that’s alright because there are plenty of people around the world who recognize Gary Sinise, especially the American military, as Mr. Sinise has dedicated over two decades to helping veterans of the United States military.
Sinise, who founded the Gary Sinise Foundation decades ago in an effort to assist the military and their families, is on the verge of releasing a new book, Grateful American.
As a thank you, A-List actors and real-life service men and women alike recorded a heartfelt message to the Forrest Gump actor, thanking him for his decades of unwavering support.

Not only did Sinise launce the Gary Sinise Foundation, but he has also worked on behalf of the Disabled American Veterans organizations and been on multiple USO handshake tours.
You can watch the video that thanks Sinise for his years of giving back — and features personal messages from the likes of Tom Hanks Robert DeNiro, Robin Roberts, Maria Shriver, Aaron Eckhart, Rob Lowe, Steve Buscemi, Jay Leno, Ron Howard, Tim Allen, Colin Powell, Judd Apatow, and more– below.
