Actor Gary Sinise, known for playing Vietnam War amputee Lt. Dan in the film “Forrest Gump,” is keeping his promise to raise money for a southwest Virginia Marine who lost his limbs while on a mine sweep in Afghanistan.
After canceling a March benefit concert due to a car accident, the star of TV’s “CSI: New York” is set to perform with his band, named after his fictional Lt. Dan character, in Martinsville on Thursday. The cover band’s performance is part of a fundraiser to help build a specially equipped home for 22-year-old Patrick County Marine Cpl. J.B. Kerns, who lost his right arm below the elbow and both his legs below the knees in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2011 during his third tour of duty.
