Actor Gary Sinise, perhaps best-known for his Oscar-nominated role as a badly wounded Vietnam vet in the movie ÒForrest GumpÓ, speaks about a benefit concert he will perform for a wounded veteran, while in St. Louis on April 11, 2011. Sinise and his band, named the ÒLt. Dan BandÓ after his character in that 1994 film, will play a Memorial Day weekend concert on May 27th in St. Charles, Missouri for Marine Corporal Todd Nicely, one of only three surviving quadruple amputees from the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Corporal Nicely lost both arms and legs after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in March 2010. Sinise announced that proceeds from every ticket sold for the May 27th concert will go towards construction of a Smart Home for Corporal Nicely, part of a project sponsored by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
