On Memorial Day weekend, PBS unites 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 broadcast is live from the West Lawn of the U.S. 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 sixth 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.
