Gary Sinise gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame (VIDEO)

In a ceremony attended by members of the military, Gary Sinise, a strong supporter of veterans, was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last week.

The star was placed in front of The Supply Sergeant, which was founded more than 70 years ago by World War II veteran Jack Arian. It’s a place Sinise referred to in the ceremony as “Jack’s store.”

During the ceremony, actress Patricia Heaton said Sinise exemplifies selflessness, courage, good cheer, hard work, and humility, while noting these are qualities often hard to find in Hollywood.

“I’m grateful for these heroes, and all who continue to defend us,” Sinise said. “It’s a gift to be able to use some of the success I’ve had in the movie and television business to try to do some good for those who serve and sacrifice each day for our precious freedom.”
