Gary Sinise: Support Our Troops This Memorial Day

Think of it as "CSI: USO," if you will. When he's not solving crimes as Det. Mac Taylor on CSI: NY, Gary Sinise can often be found touring with the USO, entertaining U.S. service members around the globe with his Lt. Dan Band, the rock group named after his salty Vietnam-veteran character in Forrest Gump. On Sunday, Sinise lands in Washington, D.C., to cohost the National Memorial Day Concert (airing at 8 pm/ET, on PBS), featuring performances by Josh Turner, CeCe Winans, Natalie Cole and the National Symphony Orchestra. TVGuide.com spoke with Sinise about his impassioned work with the troops.
