“I’m so glad that we’re back live on site in front of the Capitol,” co-host Joe Mantegna told WTOP. “We’ve had to do it virtually the last couple of years, I still think we did a good job of putting the show together, but it’s nice to be back. That’s the seat of our government.”

Mantegna (“Criminal Minds”) will co host once again with Gary Sinise (“Forrest Gump”).

“Joe started in 2002, mine was 2005,” Sinise told WTOP. “He [asked] would I come bring my band to do a segment. I did, it was magnificent, wonderful to be on stage [with] 200,000 people on the lawn and 10 million watching on PBS. Then Joe called and said, ‘They’d like you to come back and co-host’ … and I’ve been doing it with Joe ever since.”

This year’s performers include Lea Salonga, Norm Lewis, Craig Morgan, Rhiannon Giddens, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Pia Toscano and the National Symphony Orchestra.

It looks like it’s going to be a great event.

However you choose to honor Memorial Day this year, stay safe and remember our fallen heroes.
