Among his many theatrical appearances over the years was a run on Broadway in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial. Currently the voice of the Oprah Winfrey Network, the History Channel hit Mountain Men, NFL Network and dozens of other commercials and promos. In conjunction with the Department of Defense, D.B. started a website called Letters From Hollywood to collect and transmit messages of support and thanks to our troops. He’s very pleased to join with the Gary Sinise Foundation to advance the cause of our fearless service men and women and our noble veterans.

“A very small percentage of Americans serve our Nation. Along with saying thanks, it's my view that the rest of us can and should make an effort to close the gaps in what our Government can and should provide for heroes. I'm proud to work with the Gary Sinise Foundation which is uniquely positioned to do that.”
