Arlington During World War II
Through our historical digital collections we represent a snapshot of Arlington history.
In the 1940s Arlington was a small town where everyone knew their neighbor. When Japan bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, and the United States declared war, the entire nation pitched in to help in the war effort. Locally, war bond rallies and fund drives for the USO (United Service Organization) were held. More than 5,000 cadets trained in the ROTC program at the North Texas Agricultural College (present day UTA). Many men from NTAC and Arlington served in every branch of the military.
