As IF!!!!

We live in mortar/rocket alley down here.

We don't get much in the way of USO shows and entertainment.

It's sad, but the REMF FOBs get those shows, and we get stuck with a very select few acts.

I think the last one we got was the Buffalo Jills, who showed up at the end of Feb. and were here for about 1 hour in the middle of the day.

And where were all the JOES when they were here? Out conducting missions, that's what.

It's BS. It was BS the way they did it when I was here before and nothing's changed. Two years ago, it was Larry Izzo on the NFL tour, and they didn't come anywhere close to where we were.
It does suck when you know some big USO troop is in the area and you are not one of the chosen ones.

I can't complain though. I did get to see the "big one".

When I was in Vietnam we went 35 miles to the Bob Hope Xmas show. About a hour into it, Victor Charlie decided it was a good time to send in some ordinence. But the show went on, although Ann-Margaret looked a little spooked.
