'Lt. Dan' announces concert benefit for Munford veteran

Submitted by Andy Wise Sep 3, 2013, 12:24 PM

Actor Gary Sinise and the band that bears his Forrest Gump character's name announced a concert benefit for a Munford, TN, service member severely injured in Afghanistan.

Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band will hold a concert at the Memphis Cook Convention Center Friday, Nov. 1, 7p.m. to honor USMC Cpl. Christian (CB) Brown, a 2002 graduate of Munford High School.

Cpl. Brown enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2009. He served two deployments in Afghanistan, where he led 163 combat missions. On December 13, 2011, Brown stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED), losing both of his legs and suffering severe trauma to his hands and arms.

Sinise, who portrayed the combat-disabled Lt. Dan Taylor in the 1994 film Forrest Gump, formed his Gary Sinise Foundation and teamed with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation in 2011 to establish the "Building for America's Bravest" program. The program raises funds and builds customized "smart homes" for severely injured veterans.

All of the proceeds from the Memphis concert will go to the construction of Brown's "smart home" in Munford.

"It is important to stop and pay tribute to those who have sacrificed the most to our country, like Cpl. Christian Brown, said Sinise. I hope the folks in Memphis will attend the Benefit Concert which will help Chris reclaim his mobility and independence.

I know of several veterans that all speak very highly of him. They all tell me they met many different celebrities while overseas, but he is the one that always goes above and beyond.
