Catalogue Note

Williams was a constant supporter of the men and women of the American military, and for years traveled to entertain U.S. troops in war zones overseas. Of Williams, former Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said: "Robin was a gifted actor and comedian, but he was also a true friend and supporter of our troops. From entertaining thousands of service men and women in war zones, to his philanthropy that helped veterans struggling with hidden wounds of war, he was a loyal and compassionate advocate for all who serve this nation in uniform."
