Emmy Award winner, Gary Sinise, and the Lt. Dan Band celebrated the Fourth of July yesterday at the Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington where they played tunes for the troops.
The 12-member cover band is touring all over the country and will travel to special locations supporting veterans, military volunteers and family members. So far, they have performed for more than 25,000 service men and women and their families.
Today, Sinise and his band will play for free at Naval Base Kitsap in Bremerton, Wash., and will continue their tour throughout 2011.
To continue supporting the troops, Sinise formed an organization, the Gary Sinise Foundation, honoring the Nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.
