Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band rocked the crowd at The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium Saturday night.

The concert was a benefit for The Independence Fund, which helps provide injured troops with the tools, therapies and guidance that they otherwise are not receiving.

Since playing the role of disabled Vietnam War veteran Lt. Dan in the 1994 film “Forrest Gump,” Sinise has spent a lot of his free time performing and raising money for injured troops.
