"My schedule has been hectic," Lee Marvin Willams wrote Carlos Colon and the Trapped Truth Society, "for all the right reasons, and it is about to get a bit busier. On Sunday, April 22nd, I leave for Los Angeles to take part in a USO comedy tour headed to Europe and the Middle East.

The only confirmed stop thus far is Frankfurt, Germany. I will also be going into the 'war zone,' but for security reasons they do not give exact locations until you are enroute. I suspect it will at least be into Afghanistan, possibly Iraq as well. I am scheduled to return on May 8th, so I will be sure to update everyone then.

This is quite a thrill and an honor for me. I served 23 years in the Air
Force and was never in a dangerous or hostile situation, so the least I can do is go entertain the troops that have to go all the way, very possibly some of the ones I recruited.

Please let everyone know I am still alive and writing. I'll just have an
itinerant pen for a while. I should get plenty of new material and ideas out of this trip. See you all soon! Lee Marvin Adams"
