World renowned musicians, entertainers and public figures will be among those who gather to remember the fateful day and salute those who have answered the call to serve and those who continue to pay the price for Freedom. This tribute honors our men and women returning home from military service and heightens awareness of the physical and invisible wounds suffered along with the far-reaching effects on the individuals, families and society for generations to come.
