The 2015 U.S. Army Soldier Show is a high-energy 90-minute live musical that showcases the talents of Soldiers who were selected by audition from throughout the Active-Duty, Reserve and National Guard Army. The production, “We Serve” explores the foundational elements of what it means to serve, in and out of uniform, as well as how our country in return serves them. It is this “Soldier for Life” aspect that instills the strength and character of our Soldiers and our Army, which are exemplified in our core values; Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage.

 

This year’s show, features current hits “Uptown Funk,” “Bang Bang” and “Turn Down for What,” along with the Army classic “Oh, How I Hate To Get Up in the Morning.” The show also pays tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, one of the bloodiest conflicts during the Vietnam War. A Soldier from that battle, Patrick Stephenson, serves as narrator and weaves his “Soldier for Life” story throughout the program. In addition, Soldiers are featured enjoying ballet, opera and the winter holiday season.

 

The 2015 U.S. Army Soldier Show honors our Army’s continued service, resilience and strength and its mission to effectively inform, educate and inspire our audiences into action. It celebrates this great Nation, our Army, and the Families and communities that service and support our service members in return. We are honored to share this experience of service with you, and are confident that the performance of “We Serve” will leave behind a positive and uplifting reminder of what makes our Soldiers and our Army Family “Army Strong.”
