SAN ANTONIO, Texas (April 9, 2012) -- Get set to be entertained by "Ready and Resilient," the 2013 U.S. Army Soldier Show.
The 75-minute song-and-dance production by active duty, Army Reserve and Army National Guard Soldiers uses music to put an entertaining spin on how Soldiers and their families maintain readiness and resiliency.
"We had to take a good look at what the Army says makes troops and their families ready and resilient and what mechanisms the country and the world in general are offering to help with resilience," said Soldier Show Artistic Director Victor Hurtado. "And helping with readiness because you know there's a good chance that you're going back out again, so you better be ready."
The show debuts at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, Texas, April 19 and April 20, with 7:30 p.m. performances at the historic Fort Sam Houston Theater. There also will be a matinee, set for 2 p.m. April 21, before the Soldiers embark on a four-month tour of installations across the nation.
