The Gary Sinise Foundation plans to host a free concert for Memorial Day weekend. In addition, the “Welcome Home: A Celebration of Vietnam Veterans” concert will be open to the public.
A special musical appearance will be made by Gary Sinise and the LT. Dan Band where Sinise will play the bass.
Criminal Minds star, Joe Mantegna, is set to be the Emcee for the event and other special guests will be made by America’s Tenor, Steve Amerson, and Sammy Davis, Medal of Honor Recipient and Vietnam Veteran.
The Sinise Foundation posted on their website, “Join us as we celebrate our nation’s Vietnam Veterans and together, say “Welcome Home.” This free event is a salute to their service and is open to the public.

Movieguide® recently reported on Gary Sinise’ lifelong mission:
“Supporting our nation’s heroes is my lifelong mission and I will continue to serve it faithfully,” Sinise shared. “It’s an honor to be recognized and the best part is that I get to, in turn, shine a light and recognize the true heroes who serve our country.”
In 2011, Sinise launched the Gary Sinise Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides support and fundraising for veterans.
“The mission of the Gary Sinise Foundation is broad, and this is a reflection of the needs I’ve seen over the many years supporting so many amazing organizations,” the actor explained. “And the Foundation’s mission is designed to also give us the freedom and flexibility to adapt to the ever-changing needs of our veterans, first responders, and the families who sacrifice alongside them.”
Sinise has spent years supporting the armed forces and veterans and frequently speaks about his admiration for them.
“Regardless of whether you are left or right, Republican or Democrat, conservative, liberal, whatever, our defenders defend us all,” Sinise said, “and having been in the military community for so long, I have met extraordinary people serving our country.”
He continued, “We all need heroes, people to look up to and aspire to. I think that we, as a grateful nation, can always do a little more to support them in their time of need.”
