Well known for his portrayal of “Lt. Dan” in “Forrest Gump,” actor and musician Gary Sinise was named an honorary U.S. Marine during a ceremony in Washington, D.C., on Friday, according to a statement released by the U.S. Marine Corps website.

“This was one of the most extraordinary nights,” Sinise said in the statement. “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.”

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

Neat. Is Sinese a good guy or a whacko liberal?

I believe he has raised funds to help injured soldiers through many benefits and guest appearances.

As a former, this is something I do not take lightly. I can’t think of a more deserving individual. Semper Fi, Brother.

always at the USO when needed. Someone from the Hollywood Republicans told me a few weeks back that the actors from Sons of Anarchy and Sinise had an impromptu singalong at the local army base.

Helluva guy.

So glad the award wasn’t given by Benghazi Barry—wouldn’t want Sinise to have been touched by hands that have been GodKnowsWhere!

He worked in lots of good words for the military on “CSI-NY”. I think he might be a decent guy despite being an actor!
