While paying tribute to those pioneers who left their homes and families to settle the West, this year’s celebration will focus on men and women who have served in the military.

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, accompanied by the Orchestra at Temple Square, will perform its signature “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and other patriotic, inspirational and folk favorites.

In addition to the musical tributes, a series of short video vignettes will tell the stories of commitment, loyalty and heroism that distinguish those who have served or are currently on duty in the armed forces.

Video will be carried over broadcast.lds.org on July 23, 2001, at 7 p.m. MDT, in American Sign Language, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. English audio will also be available at mormonchannel.org. Television and radio broadcasts will be available in some parts of the world.
