Yesterday was a great day as always to celebrate the efforts of our current and past military members. I thought the efforts in Washington D.C made for an even better day. The first ever Concert of Valor seemed to be a hit for the most part nationally. With a star studded lineup including Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, and Eminem, viewers definitely got some top notch entertainment. I felt it was a great opportunity for not only those artists, but other celebrities, such as Bryan Cranston, to voice their support for all those that protect our country each day.
With mostly positive reviews, I hope to see events like this come back each year. Not only concerts, but maybe parades and other joyful activities. It is important to show our support for the troops with more than just a day dedicated to them. I think Washington D.C took a step in the right direction with this event.
