Founded in 1941, the USO has played a vital role in boosting morale and patriotism by presenting live entertainment to U.S. armed forces and their families. In the spirit of the meaningful performances that touched countless lives during World War II, the National WWII Museum’s Victory Belles will present two exciting sets of song and dance (one at 12 pm and another at 3 pm) in the New-York Historical Society’s Robert H. and Clarice Smith New York Gallery of American History. Join us in saluting the heroes of World War II with an afternoon of music and fun! These performances are free with Museum admission.
