Birthday of Martha Raye

From The Old Movie Guy's page on facebook:

The U.S. troops in Vietnam affectionately nicknamed birthday star Martha Raye "The Meanest Mother in the Valley." She was also honored in 1969 with an Academy Award as the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipient for her volunteer efforts and services to the troops in World War II through Vietnam. Martha was born on August 27, 1916.
