FORREST GUMP star Gary Sinise is planning a tribute to the American troops serving in Iraq with a new documentary about what's really going on in the Middle East.

The actor has been out to visit soldiers in Iraq twice and now he's assembling video footage he has taken to give Americans a real taste of what life in the desert is really like.

He says, "This will tell the story which never gets reported by the media."

His footage will feature his visits to Baghdad schools and emotional times he spent with troops.
