Raquel Welch was one of the most fervent supporters of American troops fighting in Vietnam amongst Hollywood celebrities. Rather than simply be vocal in her support, she went along with Bob Hope on his 1967 USO trip where she’d do whatever she could to give the men a little taste of home - she even cut a rug with a few soldiers.

During the shows in Saigon Welch performed solo, she danced, and she even took part in a comedy duo with Bob Hope where she added a little flavor to his performance. She was a performer that the boys definitely looked forward to.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
