Gary Sinise – Humble Servant For the American Soldier

Gary Sinise on stage

Gary Sinise is very inspiring to our men and women veterans, as this documentary from 2011 shows.  He plays the bass and touches lives with his Lt. DAN BAND, a USO driven act pumping out cover tunes and lifting spirits for our finest Americans!  By now, you know the band and what they do, but this full length film — Lt. DAN BAND:  FOR THE COMMON GOOD — is a must see for all Americans.   And every time it airs on TV, I watch it!

Gary Sinise on stage 2The CSI:NY actor said that he’s not trying to be the next great songwriter or make a second income with the music project, but rather he is doing it to lift spirits, and for the fun.  And more than 80% of the money goes to charity.  He’s humble, he’s dedicated, and his film always gives me a good feeling.

You can read a recent article of this documentary with an interview of Gary Sinise here!

I just love that Lt. Dan Band!!!
