    Lt. Dan Band's Gary Sinise A Musical Force For The U.S. Military -- L.A. Times

    'CSI: NY' star Gary Sinise has long raised his voice for military veterans, and as leader of the Lt. Dan Band he takes his support directly to the troops.

    SAN DIEGO — Under a gray sky, not far from San Diego's Balboa Park, actor Gary Sinise is getting ready to strap on his bass guitar and play before a crowd of more than 2,000 people.

    It's the last day of a recent weeklong celebration for the fifth anniversary of the Comprehensive Combat and Complex Casualty Care (C-5) program at the Naval Medical Center San Diego for the war wounded. Members of the Cirque du Soleil Street Team are performing. There are balloons, face painting and rock climbing for kids, plus barbecue from Food Network star Robert Irvine.

    My Comment: Kudos to Gary Sinise and his band for the work that they do. A must see 60 Minutes report on Gary Sinise from 60 Minutes is at the link. :clap2::clap2:
