PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (September 25, 2017) – The first full night of NQC was marked by themes of unity and patriotism. The event welcomed the United States Army Quartet to perform the National Anthem. With respect and admiration, approximately 10,000 people showed honor and gratitude as the quartet performed. Immediately following the National Anthem, they were asked to perform “God Bless The USA.” It’s safe to say that the NQC audience demonstrated respect and honor for this great country we are blessed to live in and those who have fought for our freedom.
