Also, in honor of Memorial Day, I would like to mention two of Disney's most patriotic films... 'Cadet Kelly', which honors our military, starring Haylie Duff and Christy Carlson Romano, and will air Monday May 30th at 11:55pm/10:55c. Then, there is 'Tiger Cruise', which can be seen next weekend on Sunday, June 5th at 2 am/1c. It is a remarkable movie that tells the story of 9/11, starring actress Hayden Panettiere.

National Memorial Day Concert 2016 airs on PBS

Sunday May 29, 2016 at 8pm/7c.

Repeats at 9:30pm/8:30c., 12am/11c., and 1:30am/12:30c.

Please check your local listings - as times may be different in your local area.

This is typically a very emotional and inspiring show, which honors our country and our military's sacrifice and service.

Patriotic & War Movies...

Over the course of Memorial Day weekend, these movies/specials can be seen - which give special tribute to our military...

TCM will be playing 'The Best Years of Our Lives', 'Glory', 'Where Eagles Dare', 'The Great Escape', 'The Guns of Navarone' and more.

TBN will be showing '25 Hill', 'Last Ounce of Courage' and 'Flag of my Father'.

INSP is playing on Monday special episodes of The Waltons and Western Dramas.

AMC is showing 'Patton', 'The Green Berets', 'Heartbreak Ridge', and more.

FX is showing 'Lone Survivor'. (Please note: I have not seen this movie. It is rated R by the MPAA for strong bloody war violence and pervasive language.)

*The movie '25 Hill' and The Waltons are appropriate for family viewing.

*Please know most of these other films are war movies and not suitable for young children. Furthermore, I have seen many, but not all of these movies listed. I have seen 'Glory', for instance, and it is a very intense war movie, with some very graphic war scenes. Just thinking about it, my heart goes out with great appreciation to all of our dear veterans who fought so hard to protect our freedoms today. It is important we all remember liberty and freedom isn't free.

On this Memorial Day Weekend, we remember all veterans with great honor and deep gratitude!

God Bless America and All who defend her!


  1. Hopeless Romantic 2016 - the premiere of PIXL newest original movie on June 4!

  2. A special "shout out" to Gary Sinise who has been diligently donating his time and efforts through these concerts to help our beloved "wounded warriors" find their way. God bless you, Gary, and all your good works and God bless America!!

  3. Just a heads up Net, the Disney movies that you have posted for the memorial day marathon, are also on Comcast OnDemand, with varying end dates.
