Katie Holmes spent Memorial Day weekend in Washington, DC. Katie was in the nation's capital to participate in the 20th annual National Memorial Day Concert, broadcast on PBS. The 30-year-old became emotional as she acted out the experiences of Staff Sgt. José Pequeño, a New Hampshire National Guardsman who was critically wounded in Iraq in 2006, and his family. "It's important to tell these stories and honor the sacrifices and service of these men and women and their families," says Katie. "It's a great gift to be able to portray an American of such strength."
