The afternoon show was free for veterans and their families to attend. The show itself featured a variety of Branson entertainers, some of which are veterans themselves or had performed as USO entertainment for the military. 

The show began with the posting of the colors by the Branson Veterans of America 913. Hollister Police Officer Michelle Lappin Rackley also performed the National Anthem. 

Brenda Meadows and Dalena Ditto, who later sang in the show, served as the emcee’s for the program.
