When German and Japanese aggression was heightening in late 1940, Wichita aircraft plants expanded to 3 shifts a day and were hiring as quickly as possible. Thousands of young men came to prepare for the "national emergency." The Wichita YMCA provided lodging, showers, pools, and other facilities to the many defense workers and servicemen. An additional facility was needed to help accommodate the increasing number of young men and their families. This paved the way for the East YMCA, which was established in 1943 to help serve airplane factory workers and military. Thank you to all Veterans for your patriotism, dedication, and selfless acts of courage and bravery.
