Actor Gary Sinise Donates Thanksgiving Meals to Veterans in Need

Gary Sinise, who played Lt. Dan Taylor in “Forrest Gump,” has ensured that residents of a Lincoln veterans home will not go hungry this Thanksgiving.

The actor donated funds to provide special meals Wednesday to 78 veterans living at Victory Park, an apartment complex located on Lincoln’s redeveloped VA campus where homeless veterans are housed and provided services needed to get back onto their feet, according to the Lincoln Journal Star. The residents are all between ages 22 and 74 and are veterans of war and conflicts. While Sinise was not present for the celebration, his contribution is still a meaningful one to the residents, said Samantha Garcia, property manager of Victory Park.

“It means a lot that he is recognizing them. They sometimes feel forgotten, especially as they get older. With Gary being active with veterans himself, it means a lot coming from him,” she said.
