Actor - and USO favorite - Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band are performing three free, private USO concerts for troops and their families as part of a USO tour sponsored by TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
Last night they rocked the house at Elmendorf AFB. It’s the first trip to Alaska for Sinise, who told KTUU.com, “We’re always thrilled to be able to you know, come and help – help support the troops, and entertain them and their families, and see places like this. I mean, we’ve been in some not-so-great places too, but this is one of the more beautiful spots we’ve been in.”
Check out rehearsal footage from Elmendorf in the video below! Tonight the 12-piece band will be at Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak and Saturday they travel to Eielson Air Force Base outside Fairbanks.
