Scene from a skit where "St. Peter" sends a soldier, dressed as a Red Cross nurse, to G.I. Heaven
Once every handful of months, men of the Fourteenth Air Force in China put on a show of skits, dances, and music for the entertainment of their fellow soldiers under the auspices of Special Services. Officers would dress up in costumes and pull together whatever talent they could find among the men to put on a mighty fine show for all to see.
