Armed Forces Entertainment launches 70th anniversary concert series

Past musicians return for virtual performances

On Sept. 13, 1951, the Armed Forces Professional Entertainment branch was established as a division of the Department of the United States Army to reach military personnel and their families at military bases around the world with entertainment.

The goal was to help them have fun and relax with comedy, music, theater, dance, sports and magic. 70 years later, AFE’s mission remains the same.

To help AFE celebrate before physical tours are back in full effect, tour alumni will kick off 2021 with a virtual concert series recorded exclusively for YouTube and Facebook Watch.
