This photo was taken during a United Service Organizations (USO) show in the Eagle Sports Complex at Tuzla Air Base, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on 22 December 1999. It shows members of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders dancing with lucky soldiers selected for the show. The troops look rather pleased by the opportunity.
