Actor Sinise to visit Augusta

Actor Gary Sinise will visit Augusta on April 21 to attend the 319th Transportation Co. Vietnam Veterans dinner.

Sinise, who is perhaps best known for his Oscar-nominated portrayal of Lt. Dan Taylor in the 1994 movie Forrest Gump, will also visit the Active Duty Rehabilitation Unit at Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center, according to a news release from the CSRA Wounded Warrior Care Project. Sinise is also known for his many USO trips.

The dinner will be held at Richmond on Greene at Seventh and Greene streets and will honor wounded warriors. Tickets are available by contacting the CSRA Wounded Warrior Care Project at (706) 434-1707.

Proceeds will be used to help build permanent housing for wounded soldiers who live in Augusta.
