Episode Guide »
Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise co-host the 25th anniversary broadcast of the NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT, a night of remembrance honoring the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, their families at home and all those who have given their lives for our country. They are joined by an all-star line-up in performance with the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly. Featuring a unique blend of uplifting musical performances and dramatic readings, the program airs from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol before a concert audience of hundreds of thousands, millions more at home, as well as to our troops serving around the world on the American Forces Network. Mantegna and Sinise, two acclaimed actors who have dedicated themselves to veterans' causes and supporting the troops in active service, are co-hosting for the ninth consecutive year.
