It's far from the first time that Sinise - perhaps best known for his role as Lieutenant Dan in "Forrest Gump" - has worked on behalf of U.S. service members. Earlier this month, he attended the dedication of a specially outfitted home that his foundation built for an Army captain who was severely wounded in Afghanistan.
And his band, the Lt. Dan Band, performs free concerts for U.S. troops at bases around the world to raise money for the Gary Sinise Foundation.
