Gary Sinise will provide the narration for “Lifeline: Pearl Harbor’s Unknown Hero” when the one-hour World War II Foundation documentary film premieres sometime around Veterans Day of 2018.
Sinise, well known for his award-winning movie and television roles, is an avid supporter of America’s military, both past, and present.
Joe George is probably a name unfamiliar to almost every American, but on December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor, Joe George was every bit a hero in the opening moments of America’s violent entry into World War II.
George, a crewman on the USS Vestal, which was moored alongside the USS Arizona on Battleship Row in the harbor, ignored orders from a superior officer and helped save the lives of six USS Arizona crewmen, the last Arizona sailors to get off the battleship alive.
A Medal of Honor effort is underway by the five remaining USS Arizona survivors to make sure Joe George is posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his efforts at Pearl Harbor 76 years ago.
“Gary Sinise is absolutely the perfect person to narrate this important film, ” said Tim Gray, Chairman of the non-profit World War II Foundation and writer, producer and director of 19 films to date on the personal stories of the WWII generation. “Gary has a tremendous voice, but most of all a deep passion for recognizing those generations who have done so much for us, both in the past and present day,” Gray said.
