NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT 2008 | Trailer | PBS

Duration: 00:36

As the war in Iraq and Afghanistan wages on, PBS unites our nation with the award-winning National Memorial Day Concert honoring the service and sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, their families at home and all of those who have given their lives for our country. The event, which has become the memorial service for our entire nation, is co-hosted by Gary Sinise (CSI: New York) and Tony Award-winner Joe Mantegna (Criminal Minds), two acclaimed actors who have dedicated themselves to veteran's causes and supporting our troops in active service.

The top-rated show will be broadcast live on PBS from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol to a concert audience of 300,000, millions more at home, as well as to our troops serving around the world on the American Forces Radio and Television Network. The all-star cast includes Gladys Knight, Sarah Brightman, Idina Menzel, Denis Leary, Charles Durning, General Colin Powell and Rodney Atkins in performance with the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of maestro Erich Kunzel.
