    Actor, director and producer Gary
    Sinise is embarking on his tenth USO tour to provide a morale boost to
    Marines, sailors and their family members stationed at the Marine Corps Air
    Ground Combat Center in Twentynine Palms, Calif. Sinise, together with the
    Lt. Dan Band, will perform a free show March 13, at 2:00 p.m., at Sunset
    Cinema. Best known for his Oscar-nominated performance as Lt. Dan in “Forrest
    Gump,” Sinise is a strong supporter of the military. Currently, he is
    starring in the new hit series “CSI: New York” on CBS.

    Last year, Sinise visited troops in Diego Garcia, Singapore, Korea, Iraq,
    Kuwait, Qatar, Germany and Italy. He also has visited troops wounded in
    Operation Iraqi Freedom who are recuperating at Walter Reed Army Medical
    Center and the National Naval Medical Center. Since June, Sinise and the Lt.
    Dan Band have entertained military personnel stationed at several military
    posts across the United States.

    Following a USO tour to Iraq, during which he visited with Iraqi school
    children, Sinise co-founded Operation Iraqi Children, which provides
    educational materials to students in Iraq through the generosity of the
    American people. For more information, visit
