USO in Vietnam


United Service Organization

The USO is a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to support the troops by providing morale, welfare and recreation-type services to our men and women in uniform; G.I.’s “home away from home.”

    I’m looking for information on a USO entertainer, Judy Larson,. who was with a USO tour that visited Chu Lai in August 1967. I have a photograph of her I want to include in my book on the Seabees.If there was a link to this comment I’d include that photograph./
