His Unwavering Support: Robin Williams and His Time with Our TroopsThe Veterans Site
The late Robin Williams not only was a fine actor and comedian, but an unwavering supporter of each and every branch of the U.S. Military. In fact, he performed for more than 89,400 service members throughout his life, including stops in Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq, among several others.
While his energetic performances may have lifted their spirits, troops tend to fondly recall a different side of Williams. He spoke with them about personal issues. He posed for pictures. He treated them all with respect. And he will be missed.
