On Sunday, February 10, 2019 at 5:00pm at Friends of Firefighters in Brooklyn, Gary Sinise will make his only New York appearance on the book tour for his memoir, Grateful American. Attendees can meet Gary and receive a copy of the book.

Best known for playing Lieutenant Dan Taylor in Forrest Gump, Sinise is now known for his charity work, especially his work with veterans.

Colors will be presented by the FDNY Ceremonial Unit. (Each $50.00 ticket includes a copy of the book). A $250.00 ticket includes all the above plus an FDNY-prepared dinner with Gary Sinise.
