Lloyd Borguss ©Stars and StripesWiesbaden, Germany, April, 1958: Airman 3rd Class Gus Backus entertains patients and fellow workers at the 7100th Air Force Hospital with some lunchtime music. While he was stationed in Pittsburgh, Backus and his group, the Del-Vikings, hit it big with their single, "Come Go With Me." After leaving the Air Force, Backus stayed in Germany, where he is still a fan favorite.
