Yes, especially as the most common use is a pronoun in the English language (how was that missed?), not a shortened and misspelled abbreviation for a country name that is abbreviated as U.S.A.. 18.104.22.168 00:49, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

generally refers to the United States of America BUT also ....
which generally refers to the 'United States of America'., what else does it occasionally refer to? --22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:38, 19 June 2008 (UTC) the word, a common english word trumps country and legal.--Ssteiner209 (talk) 22:34, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
The Wiktionary entry says "(UK, WWII, until 1944)", but I feel sure that is inaccurate; that it was both coined earlier,and in currency later. I certainly remember seeing equipment labelled "U/S" on a Royal Naval Air Station in the late '60s (I don't recall if it was an American machine ;).
A Google Books search for "unserviceable slang +u/s" reveals a page from British English A to Zed (Norman W. Schur, Eugene H. Ehrlich, Richard Ehrlich.)(Love that "Zed") that claims the term - as U.S., also U/S - originated in British civil service government laboratories. It also says "now rare", but that probably depends on the generation one talks with.
It is a moot point whether those computer programmes which accept only American language & locale conventions, are in fact U/S.
