Holmes Emotional At Memorial Day Rehearsal

KATIE HOLMES fought back tears as she read aloud from a soldier's memoirs at a rehearsal for a Memorial Day (25May09) tribute honouring U.S. war veterans.
Holmes appeared emotional as she rehearsed on the Capitol grounds in Washington, D.C. on Saturday (23May09), preparing to take part in the 20th annual National Memorial Day Concert the following day.
The actress told the heart-wrenching story of the sister of injured Iraq war veteran Jose Pequeno, while her All My Sons co-star Dianne Wiest portrayed his mother Nellie Bagley.
And the star insists she was honoured to have been able to participate in the event.
She says, "It's important to tell these stories and honour the sacrifice and service of these men and women and their families. It's a real gift to be able to portray an American of such strength. I'm excited. I want to do justice to her story."
