ThinkTV and CET are excited to invite you back to your television for the annual PBS National Memorial Day Concert on the eve of Memorial Day. This program, which was won multiple awards, has become a tradition – honoring the military service and sacrifice of all our men and women in uniform, their families at home, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.


This year’s concert is co-hosted by long-time veteran-supporters Joe Mantegna of Criminal Minds and Gary Sinise of CSI: New York. They will be joined by an all-star line-up including Gen. Colin L. Powell USA (Ret.), tenor Alfie Boe, mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins, The Voice finalist Chris Mann, and the National Symphony Orchestra under the direction of top pops conductor Jack Everly.


We’ll be broadcasting the National Memorial Day Concert at 8pm Sunday, May 26, on ThinkTV16 and CET. More info: or


The concert also is broadcast live on PBS and via American Forces Network to the nearly one million American service men and women stationed at bases in 175 countries and 140 U.S. Navy ships at sea, as well as Department of Defense civilians and their families overseas.
