WW2 Alaska Service Certificate

The war years brought prosperity to Alaska. Defense-related jobs were opening up. The way of life changed for many Alaskans. Entertainers traveled to the frigid north to entertain the troops just prior to, during, and after WW-II in Alaska. These entertainers generally traveled under the auspices of the United Service Organization, or as it was more commonly known as, the "USO." Towns grew, services that were not previously available suddenly came on the scene. Parades were held, dog sled races were in, and even the military bands came to town as part of the entertainment. These are pictures and stories of those times on Mainland Alaska.
