Memorial Day Concert on PBS

Did you happen to watch the annual Memorial Day Concert on PBS? Gary Sinise of CSI fame is SO supportive of all military personnel. His co-host Joe Montegna is equally supportive. The music, the views of monuments and buildings, the Reflecting Pool, the stories shared, and the statistics acknowledged all served to make it an incredibly moving but yet uplifting event. The average young age of those who served and gave their lives is one of the most poignant statistics. When the orchestra saluted all branches of the service men and women in their branch's uniforms arrived on stage and joined the audience in singing their song. I can tell you it gave me a lump in my throat and a swelling of pride in my heart. Thank God that there have been men and women serving our great country since the beginning, and may God bless all the souls of the faithful departed, let light perpetual shine upon them and grant them peace for evermore.
