The creation

of the United Service

Organizations,

also known as USO,

in 1941

was a collaborative effort

by the Salvation Army,

the YMCA, the YWCA,

National Catholic

Community Services,

National Travelers

Aid Association,

and the National Jewish

Welfare Board

to heed President

Franklin D. Roosevelt’s call

for an armed services

morale booster.

 

With its main hub

in Times Square,

over 3,000 USO clubs

cropped up worldwide

in just three years

after it was founded,

entertaining GI’s

with Hollywood performers

as well as providing them

with a place to relax

and socialize.
