    Fund Raiser for the Troops and First Responders

    Gary Sinise - Lt. Dan from Forrest Gump - has been doing lots of good stuff for the troops and first responders. The following link is to a documentary about this effort with Sinise and his band - the Lt. Dan Band. The movie kicks off tomorrow as a web stream and 25% of the receipts go to further the work Sinise does for the troops. This looks to be worth watching and the fund raising aspect is great too.

    Here is a link with Sinise being interviewed by Laura Ingraham on the Factor. The interview is about Sinise's efforts to support the troops.

    He came and did a USO tour at my base last year. The band actually has some really amazing musicians in it. And of course, it is for a good cause.
