Maureen and me with the comedy trio at Camp Victory. Even with Bob Hope gone, the USO still carries on, bringing comedy acts out to entertain deployed troops. These three were hilarious. L to R: Kathy Griffin, Michael McDonald, Karri Turner

Recently, the troops here at Camp Victory were treated to a hilarious comedy performance by Kathy Griffin (from TV's Suddenly Susan, Seinfeld, and Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-list), Karri Turner (J.A.G.), and Michael McDonald (Mad TV's "Stewie").

It was really fun to stand outside and laugh with the troops and these funny performers. They were great.

I really appreciated their willingness to come out and support the troops the way they know how: by entertaining. They certainly don't have to do it; they come out here because they want to support the efforts here in any way they can.

After the show, they set up a table in the gym and signed autographs for everybody who wanted one. Maureen and I stopped in and got autographs and a photo with the three funny people.

I just want to say thanks to them and to everybody who supports what the Coalition Forces are doing out here in Iraq. Cheers!
