It’s hard not to appreciate Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band and what they do for veterans as they travel around the country (and world) supporting causes that benefit our troops … and the children our soldiers find themselves protecting: Operation Iraqi Children both in Iraq and Afghanistan.
For aviation advocates, and in particular Warbird lovers, his band will be performing at EAA Airventure in Oshkosh Wisconsin this summer. They are a perfect fit for the crowd and will be an outstanding way to show appreciation for those who have, and continue, to put on a uniform to defend our country and freedom. (The concert, sponsored by EAA Warbirds of America and the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), is scheduled for Friday, July 30)
