    The annual National Memorial Day Concert on the National Lawn is something that I've always enjoyed watching. I've always wanted to catch the concert in person, but haven't had a chance to do so yet. Luckily, PBS broadcasts the concert live so the entire country can take part in one of the biggest concert events of the year.

    This year marks the 26th Anniversary of the concert and will be co-hosted by Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise. Both men have a long history of being actively involved in various veterans groups and advocating for their cause.

    One of my favorite parts of the program each year is when the National Symphony Orchestra performs, but there's a lot of great performances to look forward to.

    Is anyone lucky enough to be going to the concert this year? Or are you going to be one of the millions of people watching it from the comfort of their homes?

    Unfortunately, no. I haven't been able to catch in person either. It is always fun to watch though.

    I've actually never seen it before. I do like Mantegna and Sinise though, so I might give it a shot. Looked up the time and everything; just in case anyone else is curious..
