    Robin Williams with Airmen in Qatar/2004

    This picture was taken just after Mr. Williams had finished the 1 hour set during a USO tour in the country of Qatar in 2004. I had camped out all day when I should have been sleeping and made sure all my friends had a front row seat to his show. His shirt was completely dry when he started, but as anyone who knows Robin Williams' high voltage, non-stop energy, he was soaked from sweat by the time he was done. He stayed up on that stage and not only took as many group pictures as wanted he shook every individual's hand and thanked them personally. No one does that anymore, he was our generation's Bob Hope, not only because he made us laugh and forget we were supporting a war, but because he genuinely cared, you could see it and feel it in his comedy. I'm the Staff Sergeant down in front with the backpack straps on my shoulders. Now I am Master Sergeant Brett Kemp, but I never forget how happy he made SSgt Kemp that day. Forever in my heart and thank you.
