Actor Gary Sinise Becomes Honorary Marine

WASHINGTON - Actor and musician Gary A. Sinise was named an honorary U.S. Marine during a ceremony at the Home of the Commandants, Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., Aug. 29.

Sinise shares this title with other notable people including actor Chuck Norris and Pulitzer prize-winning photographer Joe Rosenthal.

“This was one of the most extraordinary nights. I was totally surprised by what the general gave me tonight. I’m humbled, shocked, moved and motivated to keep standing up for our men and women and giving back to them,” said Sinise.

Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, hosted the ceremony at his home at the Barracks.

"There is little I can say to enhance the rich reputation Gary Sinise has earned, both in the spotlight as an immensely talented actor, and less conspicuously as a tireless advocate for our men and women in uniform. What I can do, what I am privileged and proud to do, is to recognize this humble patriot's selfless service by making him an Honorary Marine," said Amos.

Sinise, 58, has acted in movies and TV shows including “Forrest Gump” and “CSI: New York” and performs in his own band, The Lt. Dan Band.

Sinise is also the founder of the Gary Sinise Foundation which supports veterans and their families through programs meant to entertain, strengthen and educate.
