Description: Remembrance Day commemorates Sentients who risked their lives in military service to their planet. Many observed this holiday by visiting war cemeteries and memorials, and staging festivities to honor veterans. Remembrance Day is also used as a time for picnics, barbecues, clan gatherings, and sporting events. HGS joins these efforts, sending top entertainers, musicians, dancers, and celebrities on tour to show their thanks to those who have served and will team up with Doctors Without Sectors in this event.

You don't have to be an entertainer to attend. But please, be on leave. This is a neutral event, which celebrates veterans and the past. It does not lean towards Imperial or Rebel alignment in the Galactic Civil War. OOCly this event celebrates Memorial Day, observed in the United States.


Color Theme :
Brown and Forrest Green, which will keep the tone that is Remembrance.

Background & Inspriation:
Remembrance Day was inspired by Ikewe's Shadowfire Starport crawl, and by real-world Celebrities who founds ways to use their celebrity to support the war effort. However, supporting war effort is not the intention of Remembrance Day.

The most famous pin-up poster in World War II showed Betty Grable in a swimsuit from the back, looking over her shoulder. The Varga Girls, drawn by Alberto Vargas, was an inspiration, as was the work of Billy De Vorss, Gil Elvgren and Zoe Mozert. During WWII, the army allowed its crews to paint the nose of their bomber planes with images of beautiful women - either girls left back home or replicas of popular pin ups.

In New York's theater world, Rachel Crothers started the Stage Women's War Relief. The USO Tours or Camp Shows which entertained troops in the US and overseas drew many entertainers. Rita Hayworth, Betty Grable, the Andrews Sisters, Ann Miller, Martha Raye, Marlene Dietrich, and many lesser-knowns were welcome relief for the soldiers, as well as several bands and orchestras that toured.
