My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I had been wanting to read Gary Sinise’s Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service since I saw an interview, he did promoting it on a podcast. I was excited when I had the opportunity to receive a copy for an honest review. Mr. Sinise tells his life story starting with his growing up years, his road to become an actor, how he got the role on the award-winning film Forrest Gump and other successful movies and shows he was part of, and most importantly how he became involved with The Gary Sinise Foundation.
I found Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service to be a fascinating and interesting read. I liked getting a glimpse into this actor’s beginnings. He was quite candid on his life. He discusses his parents and siblings, as well as, his love of his life. He was quite the rebel in his younger years. I had to giggle when he told about his marriage and their wedding night. I was surprised to find that he seems to shy away from the Hollywood scene or not be within the “inner circle”. I admire what he strives to do honoring the veterans and responders. I love his compassion on what he does for this community.
Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service is most definitely a must read. I highly recommend it for all readers who want to learn more about the life of this admirable actor, The Gary Sinise Foundation and what he has done for American veterans and responders over the years. After reading it, I am a grateful American knowing that my country has Mr. Sinise on its side.
Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service is getting a very well deserved five plus stars. This heartwarming book is a great read. Job well done, Mr. Sinise!
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
