PBS to honor Our Servicemen and Women in National Memorial Day Concert at the U.S. Capitol

Memorial Day ConcertFor over two decades, PBS’s National Memorial Day Concert has led the nation in honoring the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, their families at home and all the fallen who have given their lives for our country. The multi award-winning event will be co-hosted for the sixth year by Emmy Award-winner Gary Sinise (CSI:New York) and Tony Award-winner Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds), two acclaimed actors who have dedicated themselves to veterans causes and supporting our troops in active service. Joining them will be an all-star line-up of dignitaries, actors and musical artists.

In addition, PBS has created a website through which viewers can share remembrances of lost loved ones.  To read stories or to submit one of your own, visit the Remembrances page.

The National Memorial Day Concert will be broadcast on WGBY at 8pm on Sunday, May 29th.  From all of us, we hope you have an enjoyable holiday weekend.

  1. MY Flag
    By Betsy Fogarty

    As I gaze upon you and watch you wave; You take my soul to
    places so very far away
    Forever gone are their smiles and we tend to think of them
    but once in awhile
    War stories never to be told names and faces that to this day
    Remain unknown
    They came from our north our south east and west they came
    and they gave it their very best to arms did they march side
    by side did the fall
    Remember – Remember – Remember
    Them all

    In Memory of my dad -United States Army WWII
