Adrian Cronauer

 

 

Age: 79

 

Summary: disc jockey whose military radio antics inspired a character played by Robin Williams in the film Good Morning Vietnam who opened his first Armed Forces Radio show with the phrase "Goooooood morning, Vietnam!" during his service as a U.S. Air Force sergeant in Vietnam in 1965 to 1966, in which the film was a departure from other Vietnam War movies that focused on bloody realism, but instead it was about irreverent youth in the 1960's fighting the military establishment.
