this year's Rose Parade Grand Marshal will be

Gary Sinise!  the theme will be "Making a Difference" and he has certainly given heart and soul to veterans' causes.  i think this is a great honor for him and a fabulous choice by the committee.

Why is he famous?  (Attention: Moderators-don't POOF. I just don't know this name.  I am not being unkind.)

@maximillian  He is an actor and was in CSI: New York.  Before that he was Lt. Dan Taylor in Forest Gump.  He was nominated for an Academy Award in that.  He's been in other movies, too.  I like him a lot!

I think he is spokesperson for Wounded Warriors. But WW was recently sited for poor donation to the charity and large scalaries and expenses.

You are right. I own it. I was wrong.
