A handful of prominent Hollywood stars took the time this Memorial Day weekend to pay non-partisan tribute to America’s fallen heroes. They include Gary Sinise, Mark Wahlberg, Reese Witherspoon, Glenn Close, Andy Garcia, Joe Mantegna, Octavia Spencer, and Rob Lowe.
In the case of Matthew McConaughey, who is reportedly exploring a possible run for governor of Texas, Memorial Day served as an opportunity to post a glamor photo of himself.
Gary Sinise led the way by paying tribute to fallen military personnel, reminding Americans to “not forget those who have sacrificed, giving their lives, to provide the blessing of freedom for all of us.” The Gary Sinise Foundation also honored the country’s fallen troops.
Mark Wahlberg tweeted “Respect. Honor. Remember.”
Respect. Honor. Remember. 🙏🇺🇸❤️
