[Vietnam War] Phyllis Diller performing in 1967 during the Bob Hope show for American troops at Can Ranh Bay, South Vietnam.Vietnam War Phyllis Diller Bob Hope American troops a Can Ranh Bay boys ensconced Vietnam Wake Island USO Liberty Bell Award
It’s hard to imagine a loud, meta-comic like Phyllis Diller going over with American troops stationed in Vietnam, but like many performers of the era she made it her business to make sure that the boys ensconced in this insane war knew that everyone back home was thinking of them. Diller toured with Bob Hope’s Christmas special from 1966 to January of the next year and traveled to places like Vietnam, Thailand, Guam, Wake Island, and the Philippines.
In 1978 Diller was awarded the USO Liberty Bell Award “for demonstrating concern for the welfare and morale of America’s armed forces” from the USO of Philadelphia Inc.
