Gary Sinise visits backstage with members of the Silver Star Families of America during the recent Lt. Dan Band concert in Centertown.

Driven by a sense of honor and respect for our nation’s heroes, actor and musician Gary Sinise gives of his time and talents to raise money in support of combat-injured service members.

In recognition of his volunteer spirit, Sinise was presented with the 2012 Silver Star Families of America (SSFOA) Commendation Award in a ceremony held backstage last Saturday at the Lt. Dan Band concert.
