old-age: For the Boys

For the Boys

USO entertainers Dixie Leonard (Bette Midler) and Eddie Sparks traveled and performed together entertaining American troops through World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War.

Years later their work is due to be honoured but Dixie is unwilling to attend. Their adventures together were filled with love, laughter and tears but had ended in recrimination and bitterness.
