On May 24 the Marines of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit and the sailors stationed aboard the USS John F. Kennedy were treated to a show by The USO Show Troupe of Metropolitan New York the night before docking on the west side of Manhattan.

During the show five performers entertained the troops by singing songs from Broadway musicals and dancing on stage.  Marines were pulled from the audience and became part of the show for many of the songs.
