The Museum of the San Fernando Valley would like to say "THANK YOU" to all of the men and women that have served, sacrificed and are now serving to protect America's freedom.
If you have not seen a broadcast of one of the National Memorial Day concerts from the west lawn of the U.S. capitol, we encourage you to do so. This year is the 25th anniversary of these concerts. The program is much more than just singers on stage. This year also marks the 70th anniversary of D-Day. There is graphic footage of several segments, some very touching features of an injured veteran from Iraq & Afghanistan and a mother that has lost her son. More than a few tears are sure to fall watching this broadcast.
Here is a preview of this year's program:
As part of The Museum's ongoing programming, our Narrating Lives: Oral Histories of the San Fernando Valley, we have interviewed a few veterans of WWII. If you are a veteran, of any war, that at one time has lived or worked in the San Fernando Valley, and would be interested in possibly being interviewed, please send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
