EAA Warbirds of America and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) have partnered to bring actor/director/musician Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band to EAA AirVenture for a special concert performance on Friday, August 1, at 7:30 p.m.

EAA members, volunteers, and AirVenture attendees will be treated to a rousing rock-and-roll show as part of the regular evening program at the Theater in the Woods.

Sinise is best known for his character Detective Mac Taylor on the CBS series CSI: NY and Lt. Dan Taylor in the feature film Forrest Gump. His credits also include feature film hits Apollo 13, The Green Mile, and Ransom.

Building on the popularity of the film Forrest Gump and the character Lt. Dan, Sinise has assembled a group of talented musicians and has toured extensively with the USO in recent years.

EAA Warbirds of America salutes Gary’s involvement with the USO and shares his enthusiasm for recognizing the sacrifices made by soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen.

Warbirds President Rick Siegfried commented, "We’re very pleased to have this opportunity to work closely with the DAV and present the Lt. Dan Band concert at AirVenture 2008. Our members share a patriotic link with Gary Sinise—a deep appreciation for the job our military does on our behalf. It’s a natural fit to have the Lt. Dan Band and the DAV be part of the ‘AirVenture experience.’"

The DAV has presented Sinise with the prestigious DAV Commander’s Award for his work in supporting our men and women in the armed forces.

FUTURE AIRVENTURE DATES: 2014: July 28-Aug. 3; 2015: July 20-26; 2016: July 25-31; 2017: July 24-30
