Crowdsourcing Challenge

The USO has provided live entertainment and other programs to members of the United States Armed Forces since 1941. In December 1968, 50 years ago this month, at the height of American's fight in the Vietnam War, the USO brought celebrities, musicians and actors to help boost the morale of U.S. servicemen and women serving there. Two of these entertainers were Joey Bishop, famous for his "Rat Pack" Vegas shows and Hollywood movies, and Jennie Frankel, one of the Wrigley Doublemint Twins of the late 1960s.

You can read more about this month's WeRelate Crowdsourcing Challenge and help in bringing details of the lives of these two patriotic performers and their families to WeRelate pages. Have fun.
