HBO has announced that they are teaming with Tom Hanks and Starbucks to honor our nation’s veterans with a Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11) event, called the Concert for Valor.
HBO will allow cable providers to broadcast the live event to nonsubscribers free of charge.
It will also feature “special appearances” by Hanks, Meryl Streep and Steven Spielberg, among others.
The concert’s aim — other than honoring those who serve in our military — is to raise awareness for veterans service organizations dedicated to education, wellness, reemployment and reintegration.
