Thousands of South Mississippians turned out Sunday night for a special Memorial Day musical tribute in Jackson County.
It was the "Sounds by the Sea" concert at Beach Park in Pascagoula.
Veterans like Kenneth McGuire, who served in Vietnam, was just one of the veterans in attendance with his family.
90-year-old veteran Raymond Bazer says events like these are perfect for promoting patriotism.
"The music is wonderful. It's inspiring and makes you feel a little more, remember to be patriotic," Bazer said.
Other veterans sang their praises for the concert, too.
"The patriotic music and everything is wonderful, and it just kind of instills a sense of Americanism in everyone, I believe," Kenneth McGuire, a Navy veteran said.
This is the third year for the concert.
