Carole Landis joined Maggie on a tour of military camps during WW II.

What a shock I had while reading my paper one day to see that Maggie's friend, Rosemary Clooney, had died at the age of 74. She was one of my favorite singers and I've seen her perform a few times on stage. I'd like to invite you to visit Rosemary Clooney to learn more about this wonderful singer and true friend to many. I recall Rosemary sending my Medals for Maggie committee money to help us in getting Maggie honored. Her brother Nick sent me a very nice note thanking me for my condolences when she passed.
James Robert Parrish He writes books about entertainers and is often interviewed on A&E Biographies about them including Maggie.
