There’s no better place than Washington, DC. to celebrate the nation’s armed troops and military history. Show your support at the PBS National Memorial Day Concert on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol, where you can honor the country’s armed services with a day of tributes to veterans, and musical performances right outside Congress’ daily meeting spot. Past performers have included Gloria Estefan, Laurence Fishburne, and the National Symphony Orchestra. Each military branch will also play its service song, during which audience members have the chance to salute members of the American troops for a quintessential Memorial Day tradition.
