Lt. Dan himself, actor Gary Sinise, is helping promote the upcoming 3rd annual Lt. Dan Weekend by appearing in a recently released public service announcement.
In the minute-long clip, the “CSI: New York” and “Forrest Gump” star urged viewers to support the upcoming event, which will again be headlined by a performance by Sinise’s 13-piece Lt. Dan Band in Waterfront Park. The concert is scheduled for Sept. 15, according to organizers.
Sinise also encouraged those watching to donate to the Independence Fund, the Beaufort charity sponsoring event and paying to bring a large group of severely injured veterans and their families to Beaufort for the weekend.
Tickets for the concert are $10. Military service members get in free, according to organizers.
