Tom Hanks was inducted as an honorary member of the U.S. Army's Ranger Hall of Fame.

Oscar winning actor Tom Hanks was inducted Thursday June 29th as an honorary member of the U.S. Army's Ranger Hall of Fame for his accurate portrayal of a World War II Army Ranger company commander in the movie "Saving Private Ryan" and for his continued commitment to honoring those who served in the war.

Hanks, who was unable to attend the Fort Bennings, Georgia, ceremony, becomes the first actor to receive such an honor.

Besides his role in "Saving Private Ryan," the movie star also was credited for serving as the national spokesman for the World War II Memorial Campaign, for being the honorary chairman of the D-Day Museum Capital Campaign, and for his role in writing and helping to produce the Emmy Award-winning miniseries, "Band of Brothers."
