Tamsen Fadal and Marvin Scott had a busy night on Ellis Island. They served as co-masters of ceremonies of the 29th Ellis Island Medals of Honor ceremony.

Among the 100 honorees were Yankees icon Mariano Rivera, talk show host Meredith Viera, and the police chief of Washington, D.C.

The ceremony is filled with lots of patriotic fervor with all branches of the military participating. This was the first year Tamsen joined Marvin, who has been hosting the awards gala for 22 years.
