Engage at the Bush Center, presented by Highland Capital Management will both inspire and entertain as award-winning actor and director Gary Sinise tells the story of how he found his calling: To see that those who defend this country and its freedoms are never forgotten. Sinise was nominated for an Academy Award for his landmark role of Lt. Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump and won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of George Wallace in 1998. For nearly four decades, while simultaneously working tirelessly to help and support our nation's military and first responders, Sinise has starred in hit films and television series like Apollo 13, Ransom, Truman, and CSI: NY. Col. Miguel Howe, USA (Ret.), the April and Jay Graham Fellow of the Military Service Initiative at the Bush Institute, will lead a conversation with Sinise and discuss his new memoir, The New York Times Best Seller, Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service.
