Martha Raye
Fall, 1966.  That's me with Martha Raye in our Officer's Club in the Bung Lai Hotel.  We were still in the process of building it when this picture was taken.  Martha and her guitarist were enticed by one of the pilots from the 535th to spend an evening at the Bung Lai, which she gladly accepted.  There were only a few of us in our small club and Martha really enjoyed it because it was far from the madding crowd.  She sang, drank a lot of vodka, and smoked Newport cigarettes.  Behind the bar is Don Stallard, to his left is Bill Hodge, and the guy with the drink is A.J. Stinson.
