I don't know of any commercial DVD with the complete Stars and Stripes, but the Pas de Deux and variations are available on the "Balanchine Celebration -- Part Two" DVD. I think they did the finale, too, but my mind may be playing tricks on me.

Damien Woetzel and Margaret Tracey were El Capitan and Liberty Bell.
