Lots of smiling faces celebrated the return of the 1st Cavalry Division to Fort Hood, Texas over the weekend!

The first Cavalry's return from Afghanistan included a special performance from Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band! Check out the video above from our news partners at KWTX. 

Sinise says his role as Lieutenant Dan help get him involved with the Disabled American Veterans Organization, and that after 9-11 he's been all in doing his part to serve the men and women of our armed forces.

Sinise said, "If I can go out there and just be a champion and let people know they are appreciated. Playing some music for everybody that's the way that I can serve and I'm honored to be able to do it."
