Sinise, who starred in “Forrest Gump” and “CSI: N.Y.,” received the American Spirit Award from the WWII Museum, joining honorees that included Arizona Sen. John McCain and Maurice R. “Hank” Greenberg, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

Sinise had been honored last fall with the Army’s George Catlett Marshall Medal, the highest award a civilian can receive.

Sinise was honored for the work he does on behalf of service members, including the many trips his band, Lt. Dan, makes to entertain the military.

“I am so humbled to be here and deeply moved to receive this honor,” Sinise said, according to the Army. “I know where my freedom comes from, and I will not forget our defenders.”

What a great guy!
