Christmas 1956 on Okinawa

Nice candid photo from a soldier stationed in Japan:

Bob Hope and Jayne MansfieldI was stationed at Camp Courtney on Okinawa with the Third Service Regiment. It was Christmas time and we were in for an unexpected treat…

Bob Hope landed and put on a nice show for us – He brought Jayne Mansfield, Jerry Colonna and a few other young round eyed girls that we all whistled hoot and hollered to see more of. Maybe this will bring back some memories for you.

Jerry CalonaI have a scrap book full of pictures, pawn tickets, liberty passes and other items saved for all these years – I will share here from time to time …Semper Fi
