The United Service Organizations (USO) was established to provide morale and recreation services to U.S. uniformed military personnel by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. I like watching old clips on the shows and being a veteran myself I think anything we can do to help make our men and women in service forget about things for a while should be done. I truly hope these shows are still taking place because it brings a little of home to these far off places. Bob Hope was a true hero who entertained 1,000’s of troops for soo many years with his shows and Christmas specials. He was a true American. God bless you Bob Hope.
