Gary Sinise to be honored by West Point with Thayer Award PDF Print E-mail
WEST POINT – Actor Gary Sinise will be this year’s recipient of the Thayer Award at West Point.
The award is presented by West Point’s Association of Graduates to persons who exemplify the U.S. Military Academy motto, “Duty, Honor, Country.” Sinise will receive the award Oct. 22 in a ceremony at West Point.
 
Sinise portrayed Lt. Dan Taylor in the 1994 Academy Award-winning film “Forrest Gump.” That portrayal began Sinise’s connection with U.S. military service men and women. He participated in several USO tours and then formed the Lt. Dan Band in 2004. The band has performed for troops serving at home and abroad.
The award is named for Col. Sylvanus Thayer, the fifth superintendent of West Point, who is known as the “Father of the Military Academy” because he established many practices and traditions still in place today.
 
Past recipients have included Dwight Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan, Colin Powell, Henry Kissinger, Madeline Albright, Tom Brokaw, Neil Armstrong, Walter Cronkite and Sandra Day O’Connor. Last year’s recipient was former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice.
