    Christmas 66 with Joey Heatherton...amazing legs. Hope demanded all sorts of crap and forced commanders to submit or under threat he would not show up in their zone.

    Gave our command fits finding all the crap he demanded...no fan of Hope, but then he did it when nobody else was...Met Nancy Sinatra as well and had a photo with her, but its been lost somewhere in space...Yup Koojo, The bad good old days.

    Christmas 1968 - He came, but I never saw him. We were doing some hard fighting up on the DMZ against NVA regulars - nobody ever came up that far North except an occasional Filipino band.

    My Dad saw him in 1966 though.

    Good on him - nobody else showed up.

    Though never attended the shows [too young and little interest], had the occasion to know of these grand productions - twice in the sixties, Saigon - and another in NKP....I believe it was '71/'72.

    His troupe were known to perform a couple shows per year - not just one singular Christmas show. At least one in the war zone and another somewhere in Thailand....Udon, Korat, NKP, Ubon

    I remember him getting into a load of shit for telling a gag about leaving his shoes outside his hotel room at night for cleaning, and in the morning there was a Thai family living in them.
    Although the joke was probably about the size of his feet, there was all the usual crap about not understanding Thai culture, deport him etc etc etc
