Angel Flight Northeast Announces Angels for Armed Forces® Program

The USO and Angel Flight Northeast are proud to announce the creation of the Angels for Armed Forces® program, which “provides free flights to military personnel and veterans, who need to access medical care.  It also provides flights for military family members who need to travel to visit injured service members and whose financial resources do not permit them to travel by commercial airlines. These flights are conducted by AFNE volunteer pilots, many being veterans themselves, who share not only a love of flying, but also have a deep commitment to helping others. They donate their time, their airplanes, all expenses of the flight, and mostly, their hearts to serve their community and those in need.”  Awesome!

Photo of the Day: We Need Your Help!

We’ve been hitting the photo archives here at the USO.  We have lots of historical information when it comes to what we do, but every now and again ever we get stumped.

This is a close-up shot from a picture of five service women participating in Armed Services Day in what looks to be Times Square in the 1940s. The exact year is unknown. Her uniform is long-sleeved, since the season dictates which uniform is worn.

But who or what is she a member of?  Can you identify the insignia/patches on her clothing?  Have similar pictures?  Leave a comment and help us solve the mystery of this woman…
