Just hours before Apollo 11 landed on the moon on 20 July 1969, young Australian pop star Cathy Wayne was shot dead on stage while performing as part of the troupe Sweethearts On Parade for American Marines in Vietnam. Yet Cathy hadn’t been killed by the enemy — she’d been gunned down by one of the very soldiers who she’d travelled half way around the world to entertain. But who shot Cathy and why?
i was at Cue Chi at that time
in south viet nam
what a shame they should have had better security but that is the way viet nam was the enemy was everywhere
Nothing could have prevented this .She was not the target . I was 5 ft away.
Hi Jeffrey – that is amazing. And horrific. What do you think was the target? Best, Michael
Was in Danang at the time but can’t remember this incident.from reading the article the CO could have been the intended target.
