Navy Exchange honors Memorial Day with virtual concert series

Concert goers looking for something to do on Memorial Day weekend are in for a treat.

The Navy Exchange Service Command, the U.S. Navy retailer, is live streaming concerts for Memorial Day weekend.

“Our deserving patrons have experienced sacrifices beyond measure and have endured loss and grief unlike most,” said Rich Honiball, global chief merchandising and marketing officer for NEXCOM, in a prepared statement. “This weekend, as we remember this moment, those of us here at NEXCOM will be honoring and remembering all those brave men and women who have sacrificed serving our country.”

The Navy asked people Thursday to run a 5k to honor those who died in the line of duty.

“#RememberThisMoment is our way of honoring our service men and women as well as this unique moment in history, where we are all coming together to support each other during this unprecedented worldwide pandemic,” Honiball added. “Yes, we have great values in our stores and online, but more importantly, remembering for this moment, those who sacrifice each and every day to make our freedom possible.”

Each concert begins at 5 p.m. and is available on the Navy Exchanges’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
