LABOR OF LOVE - HQ
===================

The administrator graciously gave up a little of his time off this Labor Day to participate in festivities on the National Mall.

Charlie Bolden:

"For me, its an honor to be asked to come out here with the National Symphony in front of people from all over the country, I have learned by walking around and talking to some people, and actually from all around the world. Just to have them hear the name NASA, as a part of this concert, I think, is really important, and then having heard the music before from Apollo 13, I think they will be moved, as I am, and thats really important."

Bolden introduced a musical segment from the film Apollo 13 performed by the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Emil de Cou. The segment honored the 40th anniversary of the mission.

Charlie Bolden:

"I want to thank the NSO for recognizing the great accomplishments of our human spaceflight program with this tribute tonight to Apollo 13. So, I invite you enjoy!"

Apollo 13 launched from the Kennedy Space Center on April 11, 1970. The space vehicle crew included Commander Jim Lovell, Command Module pilot John Swigert, and Lunar Module Pilot, Fred Haise. The annual Labor Day Concert is held on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
