On the official website, Gary has placed his own letter to the public on behalf of the Lt. Then Band and how much these experiences mean to him.
“I personally made it my mission to do what I can to draw attention to our military and first-responder communities, and to make sure they know they are being remembered and appreciated,” says Gary in his letter: “Whether it’s playing with the band, supporting a military charity or visiting the war zones and hospitals to shake hands and take some pictures, everything helps them to know that there are people who are aware of their sacrifices and who appreciate it and the importance of keeping our military families strong in difficult times. “
