"Jessica Dragonette was a singer who became popular on American radio and was active in the World War II effort. During World War II she performed for charities benefiting the U.S. armed services, earning her an honorary commission as a Colonel. She performed frequently for the troops and sold a record number of war bonds. She once remarked that 'The Star Spangled Banner' never had more meaning for her than it did during the war."
