National Memorial Day Concert and Tribute in Washington DC

Even if you don't live in the DC area you can still enjoy the National Memorial Day Concert.  The concert is broadcast in the US on PBS May 30th starting at 8 PM (EST).  The broadcast can be seen by our troops in 175 countries and aboard 200 ships at sea through Armerican Forces Radio and TV.

With the US Capitol as a backdrop Co-hosts Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise and a line-up of performers including Lionel Richey, Brad Paisley and the National Symphony Orchestra lead a tribue to our service men and women in music, documentary footage and dramatic readings.

Per PBS:

 

"The 2010 National Memorial Day Concert will focus on three main themes: honoring the sacrifices, suffering and love of a new generation of young military widows whose fallen spouses served in Iraq and Afghanistan; paying tribute on the 60th anniversary of the Korean War to the heroic service of the soldiers who fought and perished; paying homage to the more than 125,000 WWI and WWII service members who did not come home but rest in 24 military cemeteries in the foreign lands where they fought for liberty."

 

Here are highlights from the 2009 National Memorial Day Concert

Hi Cindy, Our Veterans deserve all we can give them. They have fought and are still fighting for our Freedom. This is why Freedom isn't free.
