Gary Sinise to Continue Long March

25 March 2009

Gary has been supporting troops for more than two decades not just in word, but in a long stream of deeds.  Our troops post his photos on headquarters walls in Iraq and Afghanistan.  I recall during the darkest days of the Iraq war, Gary Sinise and Laura Hillebrand were helping big-hearted American donors to send millions of dollars worth of supplies to Iraqi kids.  During stints between the war, I even flew out to Kansas City just to visit the warehouse of Operation Iraqi Children, and there were pallets upon pallets of those same supplies that I had been seeing soldiers distribute to smiling Iraqi kids.  Americans at home were a big part of relieving the plight of those children, and helping turn the war around, and Gary and Laura were important “go betweens.”

And Gary continues his quest to help the troops.  He continues a global journey to entertain troops who are away from loved ones, often traveling into the wars, or in bases around the world.  I asked Gary yesterday to send his upcoming schedule of his “Lt. Dan Band.”  Even I had no idea how busy he stays.

The band website is:

But only the public gigs are listed there.  Not the base shows.  So I asked Gary for some of the base shows and he sent this:

That’s some of it brother.
