Gary Sinise & Lt Dan Band ROCK The Pentagon

Actor and director Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band rocked the Pentagon (Friday May 5th), kicking off the second annual "America Supports You" salute concert commemorating Military Appreciation Month.

"You probably think of Gary Sinise as 'Lieutenant Dan' in 'Forest Gump,' or on 'CSI: New York," Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld told hundreds of soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and civilian employees who gathered here in the Pentagon's outdoor courtyard for the concert.

"But at the Defense Department", Rumsfeld said, "Sinise is better known as cofounder of the Iraqi Children Fund that sends school supplies to Iraqi children, and as a tireless supporter of the troops who travels the with his band to entertain them."
