    The original finding aid described this photograph as: [Complete] Scene Caption: The Star Spangled Girls, a group of former Miss New Jerseys, perform at Liberty State Park, New Jersey during the "Support Our Troops" rally for national "Make a Difference Day." Veteran of Foreign Wars (VFW) and its Ladies Auxiliary, in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs sponsored the rally. The event hosted numerous entertainment acts for the 15,000 attending the three-hour rally. "Americas armed forces are gearing up for a long and arduous war on an invisible, but terrifying enemy," said VFW Commander-in-CHIEF Jim N. Goldsmith. "We are asking a lot from our men and women in the military, which is why it is imperative that we show them our support. The rally also will demonstrate to the world that the actions of September 11 and the recent anthrax exposures have not diminished our resolve, but have actually served to strengthened our unity as a nation."
