About Cpl. Mark Litynski

Cpl. Mark Litynski always wanted to be in the Marine Corps, so after a year in college he decided to enlist, despite leaving behind his girlfriend Heather whom he knew he would miss. After two years and a Marine expedition deployment, Mark and Heather were married.

During Mark’s second deployment in Afghanistan, he volunteered to be the point man on a foot patrol, where on November 19, 2010 he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED). He suffered a bilateral above knee amputation and amputation of his left forearm.

About Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band

“Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band” concerts are an integral part of the success of Building for America’s Bravest™.  Not only do the concerts provide an opportunity to raise funding for the construction of each Smart Home, but more importantly, in support of each wounded warrior, the concerts serve as a vehicle to Entertain, Educate, Inspire, Strengthen and Build Communities; which is at the core of the Gary Sinise Foundation’s mission. Creating public awareness for each wounded warrior and their family allows for long-term, sustainable support.

Proceeds Will Benefit

Building for America’s Bravest™. All soldiers encounter difficulty returning to their lives as civilians, but multiple amputees face the incredible challenge of this adjustment without their limbs. Together with Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we’re helping to construct customized smarthomes for America’s most severely injured veterans.
