Yes, it would because United States was an allied to nations which were involved in the war.

Public opinion in the United States was divided. Although most Americans favored the Allied cause, there was a strong opposition to even indirect involvement in the war.The German-American Bund and the America First movement were especially active in opposing aid to the Allies. The American Communists also opposed aid—until Germany attacked the Soviet Union; then they demanded immediate intervention.

Despite opposition, the government supported the Allies from the very beginning.At the start of the war, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated the interest of the United States in the defeat of Hitler. During the middle 1930’s Congress had passed a series of laws, called Neutrality Acts, prohibiting commerce with warring powers.

The Neutrality Act of 1939 eased this restriction by permitting commerce on a “cash and carry” basis. This clearly favored the Allies since Germany had no way of getting merchant ships to the United States. The 1939 act retained provisions of the earlier acts barring United States ships from combat zones and prohibiting the arming of merchant ships.Early in the war, the U.S.

Navy established a neutrality patrol to protect the passage of merchant ships. An agreement was reached with Denmark under which the United States established bases on Greenland. Then United States forces replaced British forces on Iceland.  Meanwhile, the first peacetime conscription in United States history had begun in 1940.
