Lt. Dan might have been a bit of a dick to Forrest Gump, but the actor who played him, Gary Sinise, has a heart of gold. He tours the nation with his band to raise money for organizations that help veterans and their families — like the Independence Fund, a nonprofit organization that provides disabled veterans with medical equipment that would not ordinarily be available to them. Dr. Lisa Marie Sternke, a former service member, says, “Last year, the procession of injured veterans caused a standing ovation. It’s great to see the community bond with veterans and for the veterans to find support.” The Lt. Dan Band concert is part of a weekend dedicated to provide support for and celebrate our veterans, including a party at Brittlebank Park on Friday, a 5K race and Warrior Ride, and a veteran expo that will showcase the unique types of equipment the Independence Fund offers.
