WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - Robert Griffin III will get some national face time with his mom and pop on Memorial Day, alongside country music singer Trace Adkins, and actors J.R. Martinez, Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna – all selected as honorary Grand Marshals for the 2013 National Memorial Day Parade.

The annual parade, organized by the American Veterans Center, will take place on Monday, May 27, at 2:00 p.m. and will run along Constitution Avenue in the nation’s capital. The television broadcast will be nationally syndicated to more than 100 cities and 80 million households across the country, according to the press release.

The parade is featuring honorary celebrity marshals helping to call attention to the service and sacrifice of the U.S. military.

Robert Griffin Jr. and Jacqueline Griffin, both U.S. Army Veterans, will be featured prominently with their son as part of a special salute to the sacrifices made by America’s military families.

The parade will also include musical performances by former “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks, and Miss America 2013, Mallory Hagan.
