Swampy Live: Swampy is currently riding with a flock of cartoonists entertaining service men and women around Florida during the first official USO National Cartoonists Society tour of Florida.

Started in Tampa at MacDill Air Force Base. After a trip to the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital, we started the trek to visits in Jacksonville and in Georgia. We stopped in Ocala for dinner arranged by Swampy’s Rob Smith, Jr. Helping Rob in Ocala is the first person in the photo, Morrey Deen. Morrey invited a reporter and photographer from the Ocala Star-Banner, who are the second & third in the photo. The fourth is Jeff Bacon, who organized this trip with the USO and got the NCS/USO trips started.
