"It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men who goes into battle."
-Gen. (ret.) Norman Schwarzkopf 

National Moment of Remembrance
Each year at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day, Americans unite in a National Moment of Remembrance which honors America’s fallen and their families. During this time, 200 Amtrak trains blast their whistles, approximately one-half million Major League Baseball fans at ballparks around the U.S. are joined in silence, and countless other participants pause to remember the sacrifice made by the fallen. 

National Memorial Day Concert broadcast

On Memorial Day, PBS will again unite the nation with an evening of music and song that has become an American tradition.  The multi-award winning National Memorial Day concert will be broadcast from Washington DC near the steps of the U.S. Capitol.
