DES MOINES (CBS 2/FOX 28) -–
   Mount Olive Lutheran Church and School announced that it will host a Military Tribute Concert on August 12, 2013 at Iowa State Fair’s Knapp Stage. Governor Branstad and Lieutenant Governor Reynolds are scheduled to attend.  The event begins at noon and is open to all ages.
   The concert will consist of a 160 person adult choir, an 80 member orchestra and a children’s choir for ages 5 – 12. All music will be patriotic including The Star Spangled Banner, God Bless America, The Battle Hymn of the Republic and more.
   Working in conjunction with Iowa District West, Mount Olive’s goal is to provide an opportunity for musicians from across the state of Iowa to show their gratitude to our nation’s veterans by offering a concert in their honor.  An open invitation will be sent to active duty military personnel, veterans and families of the fallen heroes from The Global War on Terror.  Families of fallen soldiers will be asked to decorate the area below their designated flag in the flag memorial.
