Actor Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan Band performed at Stage AE on Friday, Aug. 9, 2013, to raise money to build a “smart house” for Sgt. Doug Vitale, a local Marine who was severely injured while serving in Afghanistan.
Marty Griffin broadcast live at VFW 764 in McMurray in support of Operation Doug before a press conference where a rendering of a Smart Home for Sgt. Doug Vitale and his wife Alexis was unveiled and an American Flag painting was dedicated.
Doug Vitale lost most of both of his legs after stepping on an IED and now a fundraiser is aiming to help build him a smart house.
