The 2014 National Memorial Day Concert and A Capitol Fourth 2014

The 2014 National Memorial Day Concert honored veterans from Afghanistan; the 70th anniversary of World War II’s D-Day invasion on the beaches of Normandy; and service members, their families and those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. A Capital Fourth, America’s national Independence Day celebration, featured an all-star salute led by television personality Tom Bergeron. Both programs were broadcast live on PBS from the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
