The National Memorial Day Concert… Photo Blog (Army Wife Network)

Remember that saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words?” Well, I think it’s true. I was recently privileged to attend The National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, DC. And today, I want to share some of the most photogenic moments.

I had the great privilege to chat with one of the producers of The National Memorial Day Concert, Jill Jackson. Her heart to honor our fallen service men and women (and their families) was down right inspirational.

The various milspouse press representatives had an opportunity to post with Actress Ana Ortiz. Another beautiful soul!

Recognize this gal? (The girl in the pink top… not me.) Yep, that is the voice of Moana, Auli’i Cravalho. She was such a sweet soul, so passionate and kind– and  a voice that did our National Anthem so proud. (Rehearsal picture below)

One really cool part of the entire experience was talking to and meeting some of the celebrities that were taking part in the program. If America could be embodied in a person,  Robert Patrick (Terminator 2) would be the guy. After listening to him share his incredible motivation for supporting our troops, I really had no other questions to ask him… Other than “Will you be my adopted grandpa?” (He said yes. So I think it’s a done deal, folks.)

This is only the beginning of my photogentic experience. Swing by Army Wife Network to see the rest of my ah-maz-ing experience at the National Memorial Day Concert.

Readers: Did you have the opportunity to tune into The National Memorial Day Concert? What did you think? If you missed it, don’t worry. Watch the program in its entirety over on YouTube,  connect with them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter @MemorialDayPBS. You can also check out the hashtag #MemDayPBS to recap the on-the-spot Tweets from the event.

Oh, one last thing: Be sure to catch A Capitol Fourth Concert, broadcast by PBS on July 4th at 8:00pm EST. If The National Memorial Day concert is any indication (and I am sure it is!) this is no doubt going to be a GREAT show!
