Today is September 11, 2015. It is hard to believe that 14 years ago this morning, America endured one of her darkest moments. 

We visited Korea again this past May as a Gary Sinise Foundation/LT Dan Band tour to play for our troops at both Camp Casey and Camp Humphries. For this last trip, I invited filmmakers to document it.

Each year we celebrate July 4th as the day during the Revolutionary War when Americans declared their independence from Britain by signing the Declaration of Independence.

In 2008-2009, I was assigned to the 349th Combat Support Hospital serving at Forward Operating Base Salerno located in eastern Afghanistan, close to the Pakistan border.
