Actor Gary Sinise was in the Chicago area Friday to kick off the upcoming Rockin' for the Troops concert.

Sinise and his Lieutenant Dan Band performed at the annual fundraiser in Wheaton.

This year, some of the money will go to build a house for Corp. John Peck of suburban Antioch. He lost both legs and most of his arms while serving in Afghanistan. The house will be located in Maryland where the marine is undergoing treatment.

"We're looking for property there in that area so that we can find the right spot for him and then build a specially designed home for him," Sinise said.
