Gary Sinise, perhaps best known for his Oscar-nominated role as Vietnam survivor Lt. Dan in "Forrest Gump," is bringing the military back to his career -- or rather, giving back to the military through his career.
On July 4, the 56-year-old actor is releasing a documentary called "Lt. Dan Band: For the Common Good," which combines Sinise's interest in music with his passion for the troops.
And that's not even the best part.
Jonathan Flora, who directed the documentary, tells Fox411, "The heart of this movie is really giving back to those who are willing to lay down their lives for this nation. Even the act of streaming the movie [which costs $3.99]. One out of every four dollars is going back to the Gary Sinise Foundation, so that he can continue doing what he’s doing."
According to FOX News, the Gary Sinise foundation supports a collection of charities and foundations, including the the United Service Organizations and Operation International Children.
Flora added, "It’s really our men and women that are the stars of this movie ... This isn’t a praise piece about Gary. This is following Gary and the band, using them as a vehicle to meet the men and women in uniform."
