War is Hell

I watched the Bob Hope Christmas Tour (1967) on You Tube last night.  Of special interest was the rapt attention of tens of thousands of military men and women watching small-talent/big name entertainers perform acts which wouldn't "make it" on TV.

For the first time I realize just how BORING the Viet Nam War was.

Really!! It held enough excitement to last me the rest of my life. I also enjoyed the one Bob Hope show I got to see from the back of the bleachers.

Falstaff beer and a Filipino floor show, what's not to like.
