SAN ANTONIO (May 20, 2015) — Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno and Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey will host the U.S. Army Soldier Show’s Army Birthday Week performance at the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., June 9.

The U.S. Army Soldier Show is a 90-minute song-and-dance production of “entertainment for the Soldier, by the Soldier,” the working motto of Army entertainment. 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 2015 U.S. Army Soldier Show “We Serve” 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.

However, it also features Soldiers enjoying the winter holiday season, ballet dancing, opera, and other snippets of cultural diversity, which have delighted audiences throughout the nation during the past two months of touring.

The free show will begin at 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Tickets, however, are required and available at these locations:
