The Hollywood Canteen was the jewel in the crown of WWII Hollywood. From 1942 to 1945 over 3 million servicemen came through its doors. There, in a converted barn, soldiers were fed, entertained by and danced with the biggest stars in the world. Founder Bette Davis insisted The Canteen be free to all servicemen and women regardless of race. The soldiers were armed with the kinds of hope and encouragement that would help them win the war.
