Military veterans and active-duty service members were among the hundreds of thousands of music fans who packed the National Mall on Tuesday for a free Veterans Day concert starring Bruce Springsteen, Rihanna and Eminem. 

The first-of-its-kind Concert for Valor, staged by HBO, Starbucks and Chase Corp., was intended to raise awareness for issues affecting veterans.



Jennifer Hudson kicked off the event appropriately with a powerful rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner in Washington on Tuesday night
