Tune in for this Memorial Day tradition.

Honoring our American heroes for over 25 years, the NATIONAL MEMORIAL DAY CONCERT pays tribute to 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. Joe Mantegna and Gary Sinise co-host the 26th annual broadcast of this night of remembrance that airs live from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol before an audience of hundreds of thousands, millions at home and to our troops around the world via American Forces Network. This American tradition airs live on WXXI-TV Sunday, May 24, 2015 at 8 p.m. An encore presentation of this special will air at 9:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV that same evening.

Veterans Connections:

To draw awareness to the issues of local veterans, WXXI and the Little Theatre convened a Veterans Affairs Task Force to identify the most pressing needs and issues facing veterans and their families in the Greater Rochester area and to make recommendations about ways that WXXI/Little programming and outreach can help address those needs.
