GAC performer Lt. Dans Band in IAmerican ProfileI
WASHINGTON (2/3/09)--The musical performer at this year’s Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference (GAC), the Lt. Dan Band, was featured in a cover story this week in American Profile. The Lt. Dan Band is slated to play Feb. 22 at the GAC. The band was formed by Chicago composer Kimo Williams and Gary Sinise, actor/musician and star of “CSI New York,” a TV show on CBS. “Lieutenant Dan” is the character Sinise played in the 1994 film, "Forrest Gump.” The band has completed six tours for the USO and performs regularly for troops. Much like the credit union philosophy of people helping people, Sinise told the magazine that he’s always looking for ways to give back. “People have paid a price for us to have the life we have here,” he told American Profile. “You look at people who live in war zones, where their countries are always fighting and they never seem to get out of it. We’re lucky with the number of people who are willing to volunteer for service here. We should be thankful to them. We can never do enough for our veterans.”
