Portsmouth, Va .- Actor Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band hit the stage in Portsmouth over the weekend. But it was more than just his musical skills that made an impact on this military community.
Only NewsChannel 3 was there when Gary met with local wounded warriors from Portsmouth Naval Medical Center and Wounded Wear.
He posed for pictures and shared many thank yous and laughs. But it’s his work with his foundation that has impressed the warriors so much.
Wounded warrior David Post, a Marine, was excited when he heard the Lt. Dan Band was headed to Portsmouth.
Young, old, uniforms and civilians danced and sang along as Sinise worked the bass!
This is just one way the Gary Sinise Foundation is helping those making sacrifices for our country. Post, an amputee, credits the group with giving the wounded hope with a program giving heroes homes.
Sinise’s dedication was clear backstage when meeting wounded warriors.
He even took the time to sign a symbol of one vets sacrifice– his wheel chair.
