Actor Gary Sinise has dedicated his life to helping military veterans and their families.

The Gary Sinise Foundation raises about $30 million annually, 90% of which goes toward the organization’s programs, like building specially adapted smart homes for severely disabled vets, and treating military families to Disney World.

As a thank you for his dedication, tons of Sinise’s fellow actors, friends, peers, and many of the veterans he’s helped surprised him with a wonderful video thanking him for his service and dedication the last four decades.

Of course, the video ends most appropriately with Forrest Gump costar Tom Hanks saying, “Thanks, Lieutenant Dan!” with a smile.

Of course, People was there to capture Sinise’s emotional reaction to watching the video.

Thanks, Lieutenant Dan!
