Good for Her!

As the song title goes; "There is Nothin' Like a Dame"...
And she certainly is unique. She has quite the 'Life Story' to tell.

I watched a program about her yesterday. She is and was down to earth and gutsy. It was her idea to travel all the way out to Burma to sing, and the troops loved her for it. Those that survive still do.
