Robert E. Lee High students will take the stage starting tonight for their “USO Show: Vietnam — A Musical Tribute to Vets.” The show will continue through June 1.

Veterans and their families have been submitting photos of their service members who were in the service — any branch — between 1965 and 1975. Those photos will be used in tributes during the show, including a tribute to those still living and a memorial to those who have passed away.

The show will feature music and dance from the era.

A portion of all ticket sales will go to benefit Operation Gratitude, a nonprofit organization that sends letters and packages to current soldiers to help lift their spirits.
