Nanu, Nanu

Robin WilliamsRIP

 Actor Robin Williams, who died Monday at age 63 of an apparent suicide, had visited both Afghanistan and Iraq in 2010 as part of a USO tour to bring entertainment to the troops during the holidays. But it was his visit to Kuwait in 2007, and how his military audience reacted during the retreat ceremony, that might have been the most memorable.

Williams was in the middle of entertaining service members on the evening of Dec. 6, 2007 at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait when the base’s retreat ceremony began. (Robin Williams A Beloved Figure On USO Tours)

    Great Post Bob.
    It’s a shame that some of the best don’t stick around long enough.
