On Memorial Day weekend, PBS will unite the nation with an evening that
has become an American tradition. The "National Memorial Day Concert"
honors the service and sacrifice of the men and women in uniform, their
families at home and all those who have given their lives for our
country. The top-rated show (#3 in PBS Primetime!) is broadcast live
from the West Lawn of the US Capitol before a concert audience of
hundreds of thousands, to millions more at home and on the American
Forces Network to troops serving around the world. The multi
award-winning broadcast features an all-star line-up in performance with
the National Symphony Orchestra and is co-hosted for the seventh time
by Emmy Award- winner Gary Sinise and Tony Award-winner Joe Mantegna,
two acclaimed actors who have dedicated themselves to veterans' causes
and supporting the troops in active service. The event has become the
nation's memorial service offering viewers a time to remember, to heal
and bring the country together.
Be sure to watch "The National Memorial Day Concert" Sunday, May 27 at 7 p.m.
