In World War II, Bob Hope and many other stars of stage, radio, and "the silver screen" traveled the world to bring a little home-town USA entertainment to American forces everywhere. From the Arctic to the South Pacific and everywhere in between they put on shows, sometimes within shooting range of the front lines. This was made possible by a private, non-profit group called the United Services Organization, known everywhere by the initials USO.

When the war in Korea broke out, the WW II tradition was continued. In this photo, Bob Hope sits with men of X Corps, as members of his show entertain at Womsan, Korea on 26 October 1950.

Today in WW II: 29 May 1943 Remaining Japanese forces on Attu, Aleutian Islands, stage surprise suicidal banzai charge at Massacre Bay, one of the largest such attacks experienced in the Pacific.
