Thanks For The Memories…



I attended the Cam Ranh Bay show, but forgot to bring my opera glasses.  It was enjoyable, 43 years later, finally being close enough to the stage to ogle Raquel Welch.  Bob always brought the beauties with him. They sure don’t make ’em like ol’ Ski Nose anymore…

  1. Thank you Bob this takes me back to Guam where I was stationed with my husband Rodney A Wyatt USAF. I was there on the Raquel Welsh tour. So close I could almost touch him. Had just arrived in Guam. Sat by the Secretary of State on a military plane leaving from Hiwaii, where I had spent a night on a park bench. Had $19 when arrived there. One of the most memorable years of my life. Worked at Bank of American on Guam.
    Thanks for posting this

      Hi, Brenda. Back in those days, I spent a night or two on a park bench myself (sometimes under one). Sounds like you had some adventures. Stop back & share some more. Thanks to your husband for his service, and to you for your support.

    I was stationed at 43rd Medical Group, on the 8th Field Hospital in Nha Trang, Dec67-Dec68. Went to Bob Hope in Cam Ranh. Had broken leg and our convoy was the last to arrive. We stood in the very back. Couldn’t see a thing. Still a great memory. Thanks for this!

      Kelly, I might’ve been in that same group. We rolled out of Long Van & joined up with a convoy out of McDermott before heading down Highway One for the show. I remember we got there late, stacked arms, & took up positions at what seemed to be about 2 klicks from the stage. A great memory, soon to be eclipsed by Tet ’68 — I’m sure you remember that one well! A belated welcome home to you.
