Cadet Minstrel, 3rd Aviation Instruction Center-WWI Artifact

On April 4, 1918, a special musical performance was conducted by the flying staff and cadets to raise morale and break the monotony of the daily flying regimen. A short program for this event was distributed to attendees and identified all the participating musicians. Enclosed within the program is a leaf for a follow-on performance by many of the same musicians held at Chateauroux, France a few weeks later on April 27, 1918. (U.S. Air Force image)
