Holy Cactus! Or is it Cacti?

Or maybe cactuses? A plant this huge must have drawn quite a few visitors over the years.

Can you help us identify the location in this photo based on the cactus or surrounding plants? We hope that someone will be able to narrow down the date from the automobiles in the lot, or even uncover the identity of the man posing here.

Please leave a comment if you can tell us any information about this picture.

Milk On Tap

Can you spot a milk mustache in this crowd?

Volunteers pour milk for sailors, date unknown.

The USO loves the volunteerism and piece-of-home feel displayed in this photo. Can you help us determine the location, date or identities of the people at this bar?

Maybe the insignia with the eagle and moon tells you something. How much information can you milk from the details? The background is dark and slightly blurry, but we are glass half full kind of people. Leave a comment below if you can tell us any information about this photo…or if you have any other lactose-oriented jokes.

‘Heave a ho there! Sailor’

While many Americans are taking their vacations to the shore, help us identify the harbor in this photo.

Can you identify the location or date of this photo?

The ship names are barely visible, but can you recognize them? Do the cranes in the background or the mountain in the mist give away the location of this place – Stateside or overseas?

According to our records, the USO logo on the armband of the volunteer pictured here was in use from 1974-1983. Do you notice anything else that indicates a more specific date when this photo was taken?

Where in the USO World?

We have so many USO Centers and events across the globe that it’s hard to tell where this photo was taken.

Is that melting snow on the ground?

Maybe you’ve visited this location, or maybe you know someone else who has. See if you can identify the person(s) and place in this photo, and help us determine the date for our records. Hopefully someone out there will recognize some of the signage or surroundings.

You know the drill- leave a comment with any information about this photo below. Thanks for all your help!

What can you tell us about this photo?

Unfortunately, we don’t have any record of where or when this was captured. It’s such a beautiful moment, and we would love to have more information about it. Please join the USO in a search for clues that might reveal something about who these men are and what brought them together to decorate an evergreen on this beach.
