Barbara Oberhansley, The Armed Forces Vietnam Network (AFVN) Weather Girl.

Introduced on AFVN as "the bubbling, bundle of barometric brilliance."  Bobbie closed each show with a wink and wished "everyone a pleasant evening weather-wise and good wishes for other-wise."

A volunteer, she was not paid of the weather broadcasts.

Officially, Bobbie was a secretary for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) who worked at the Mondial Hotel USAID Annex in Cholon and lived on Nguyen Hue Street in Saigon (1967 - 1969).
