‘Forrest Gump’ actor to play Fort Campbell concert

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) – Actor Gary Sinise is performing with his band at a free concert for Fort Campbell soldiers and their families next month.

Sinise is perhaps best known for playing the wounded Lt. Dan Taylor in the 1994 film, “Forrest Gump.”

Sinise founded the music group, called the Lt. Dan Band, and has performed for the military around the world. A release from Fort Campbell says the group has played more than 300 shows.

The Fort Campbell concert is Sept. 4 at the Division Parade Field.

The show is sponsored by the USO and Gary Sinise Foundation, and is free to all Department of Defense cardholders with valid ID cards.
