The National Symphony Orchestra and a number of other music artists and groups perform in order to honor the men and women serving and who have served in America's armed forces around the world, including the 12 Season winner of American Idol: Candice Glover (who will perform the National Anthem), Katherine Jenkins, Chris Mann, and more...
