How Ray Brzny got to Dance with Jill St. John
(when asked about this photo)

We got off work in the morning after working 12 hrs and we went down to the field where they were setting up the stage. We were right in the front. After a few hours the people from the hospital told us to get out because they were bringing the wounded guys to get front row seats on the ground. We complained, but no go. As we were walking out I just got in back of a fellow in a wheel chair and then said I was with him and the other guys followed my lead and we went back to the place where we left – ha! Well you have seen USO shows on TV and they are wild in real life, with a cast of thousands and all guys. After a bit Jill came on and Bob Hope did his thing and as always asked if someone wanted to come up and dance. I was up there in a heart beat. It was fun and all the GIs were yelling and what ever. Next thing I knew Bob Hope was poking me in the ass with his golf club that he has with him all the time and tells me to save something for the other guys. I got a hug and kiss from Jill and a handshake from Bob. What a day and a lot of cheering going on. When you are there it is a lot more wild than what you’ve seen on TV. You have thousands of guys and a few really pretty girls.
