The National Memorial Day Concert

I have been involved in the National Memorial Day Concert since 2002. Initially as an a performer, but after the great Ossie Davis passed away in 2005 I was asked to take over the hosting duties. I now gladly share that honor with fellow Chicago actor and dear friend Gary Sinise. The video below explains my feelings about Memorial Day and why I do the concert every year.



Highlights from the 2013 concert.
