美国联合服务组织 (United Service OrganizationsUSO) 成立
194124

当参加第二次世界大战的士兵们获得休假时,他们能去哪里,能做些什么呢?这个问题因为政府在194124日成立联合服务组织而得到解决。这个组织的主要目的在提供休假士兵与其家人有休憩的场所。联合服务组织的休闲俱乐部提供的服务很多,包括跳舞、电影,现场娱乐,以及适合谈天、写信,或者寻求宗教慰藉的安静场所等等。


When a World War II soldier received a needed break from fighting, where could he go and what could he do? A solution to this problem came with the formation of the United Service Organizations, popularly known as the USO, on February 4, 1941. Its mission was to provide recreation for on-leave members of the U.S. armed forces and their families. USO recreational clubs supplied a place for everything from dancing, movies, and live entertainment to a quiet place to talk, write letters, or find religious counsel.
