In an amazing story showing his faithfulness and dedication to the troops, actor and 4-time Troopathon participant Gary Sinise is making news again from his astounding level of dedication to our American troops.

Cpl. Joshua Benjamin "J.B." Kerns (USMC)..., lost both his legs below the knee as well as his right arm below the elbow during combat operations in Afghanistan while the then 21-year-old Marine was serving his third combat tour of duty in "The 'Stan" as that nation is referred to by Marines.

In an Associated Press article via Fox News, Sinise promised J.B. that a benefit concert scheduled on March 31st by Sinise's "Lt. Dan Band" would help raise money to construct a "smart home" for the wounded warrior.

Unfortunately, Sinise had to postpone the gig due to an automobile accident he was recently involved in.

True to his word, the concert is back on for this upcoming Thursday.

Sinise, who has raised millions of dollars to aid wounded military vets and first responders, was quoted by the AP:

"These are young guys that have ...given a lot for their country and they're going to have to go for the rest of their lives with a real challenge.

We're trying to do as much as we can for as many of them as possible."

GARY SINISE IS KEEPING HIS PROMISE TO A MARINE. LET'S MAKE GOOD ON OUR PROMISES TO SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!

These brave troops are deployed in some of the most dangerous provinces in Afghan war zone, including Sangin and Helmand Province.

Updating our progress towards reaching our goal, it looks like we have raised enough funds to support 411 of our 800 Marines. That means we're more than half-way to our goal! 

This is an amazing outpouring of support! But we have to keep the momentum going and get all the way to our goal! 

We have already collected enough to help over half of our Marines, however there are still  389 Marines out there who need YOU to sponsor a care package for THEM! Please Help today!
