We had a variety of special guests from the Uso. Often they comprised of singing groups from States or out of New Zealand.  They surely were a must needed distraction.

 Pictured above and below is Rachael ( Rae ) Tobeck .  She was 20 years old at the time of her tour.  She was sent to Vietnam from Sydney Australia.    She says she would do 2 USO Shows a day visiting as many FSB, LZ`s, as they couild fit in.  Im sure we came accross her show at some point. 
 She says she was honored to have gone to Vietnam  and it was one of the single important times in her life !
  She asked if I would post these pictures in hopes that some one would remember her.
  We surely appriciated the USO Shows, and for a brief moment in time forgot about the war.
