Bob Hope Christmas Show 1965 Ubon Airbase Thailand

Youtube Posting Comments: We recorded this audio tape to play over the base radio station for the troops who could not attend the show. After about 35 years, I decided to see if I could locate Chuck Anger. This tape has been a great vehicle to rekindle a friendship that started 42 years ago.

I dedicate this production to all the men and women in uniform then and now.

Bob Hope was a great friend to our folks in uniform, but he could not have done the job without the unselfish support of many, many stars and acts.

Bob & Company -- Thanks for the memories.

Dear Mr. Morton,
On behalf of the Hope family I want to extend my gratitude to you and Mr. Chuck Anger for generously sharing with us your interviews with Mr. Hope and the other members of his troupe when they visited your base in Vietnam.
It was wonderful to hear them speaking privately to soldiers as opposed to NBC microphones. I can hear a difference. Thanks again for accommodating our request for a copy.

Best regards,
