“After rocketing to prominence as the wheelchair-bound Lieutenant Dan in Forrest Gump, the Academy Award-nominated actor suddenly found himself a leading advocate for wounded vets,” writes Hollywood reporter Jeanne Wolf of actor Gary Sinise (September/October 2013).
Not only has the busy actor formed the Gary Sinise Foundation to organize veterans programs, but he’s also tapped into his musical roots. Sinise entertains troops and raises funds with the Lt. Dan Band, whose motto is “Honor. Gratitude. Rock & Roll.”
Watch Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band performing live for the troops in the videos below. Plus, in an interview with 60 Minutes, Sinise reveals why he went to a small-town city council meeting on behalf of a wounded veteran.
