Actor Gary Sinise is honoring an injured war veteran by building him a home.

"I've been to the hospital several times over and over over the years and I met incredibly inspiring and courageous young men and women who have sacrificed a lot for us," said Sinise.

Sinise will hold a Memorial Day concert in St. Louis, Mo. to raise money for Cpl. Todd Nicely.

He's one of only three surviving quadruple amputees from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Sinise is teaming up with a foundation in New York to build the home. It's designed to meet the challenges of Nicely's injuries.
