Former Sec. of Defense Robert Gates recited the Gettysburg Address

On Friday night of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society Convention in Gettysburg, the Society hosted a free historic and commemorative concert at the Pennsylvania Monument on the Gettysburg battlefield. The “President’s Own” U.S. Marine Corps Band played, and the audience also saw joint performances with the West Point Choir. With this year marking the 150th anniversary of the Battle at Gettysburg, it was especially moving to see Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates recite the Gettysburg Address. The battlefield evening ended with a spectacular fireworks show.
