Lt. Dan Band performs at Fort Benning

FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

Soldiers and their families are getting a special treat from actor and humanitarian Gary Sinise, known for many roles, including his award-winning performance as Lt. Dan Taylor in the movie Forrest Gump.

Sinise's band, appropriately named The Lt. Dan Band, is performing at a USO concert on post tonight, April 5.

"Fort Benning has been in the thick of it from the begging of the War," Sinise tells News Leader 9. "The 75th Rangers have been deployed countless times over, and over, and over from the very beginning."

This is The Lt. Dan Band's first time performing at Fort Benning.
