This picture is from the series "All Dressed Up And No Place To Go" by World Wide Photos. The original is owned by Jan and Terry Primas. This image was scheduled for release on Sunday, December 7, 1941, the day Pearl Harbor was bombed, leading the United States into World War II. The soldiers are on the west side of the square. The caption reads, "Fort Leonard Wood, MO. - “To beer or not to beer” that is the question debated by these soldiers gathered at the entrance to the U.S.O. Club room situated next door to a beer parlor. Waynesville has two one-room U.S.O. Clubs where the boys may read or play games. Contracts for a large U.S.O. building have been let as the present rooms can accommodate fewer than fifty soldiers at a time.
