Sinise will speak about his new memoir Grateful American

Award-winning actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise will make his first appearance at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum on Monday, February 4 at 7:30 PM for a presentation about his new memoir, Grateful American: A Journey From Self to Service.

Gary Sinise will share his amazing story about how a kid from Chicago went on to a prominent career as an award-winning actor and director. But his standout role as Lieutenant Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump led to his true calling: to support our nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders and their loved ones, while upholding the importance of keeping our country strong by taking care of those who serve.

In the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, this became Gary’s life mission. While starring in hits like Apollo 13, Ransom, Truman, George Wallace, CSI: NY, and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, Gary has worked tirelessly on behalf of those who serve this country, entertaining more than a half million troops around the world playing bass guitar with his Lt. Dan Band, raising funds on behalf of veterans, and founding the Gary Sinise Foundation with a mission to serve and honor America’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need.

General admission tickets to this event are $45. Tickets for Nixon Foundation Members are $36. All tickets include a signed copy of Grateful American.
