Bob Hope and Phyllis Diller in Vietnam, 1966

Cam Ranh Bay, South Vietnam, December, 1966

Bob Hope, with his trademark golf club, and Phyllis Diller, with her ever-present cigarette holder, entertain the troops at Cam Ranh Bay during Hope's annual Christmas tour of the Far East. Diller, whose self-deprecating humor also fed the routines of many other comedians (Hope joked that she was "scaring both sides" in the Vietnam War), died August 20, 2012 at age 95.
