Biography[]

Chris Noel was born as Sandra Louise Noel on July 2, 1941, in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is an American actress, singer, model and radio host. Star of a dozen beach party movies in the 1960s, she is perhaps best known by veterans of the Vietnam War for her work on the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service as the "Voice of Vietnam". Noel made frequent visits to the troops and was shot down twice in helicopters. Her radio program "A Date With Chris" was one of Armed Forces Radio's most popular shows and is fondly remembered by many Vietnam vets. Her pin up pictures were very popular.

In addition to her work on radio during the Vietnam War, she toured the country eight times, including twice with Bob Hope. Her interest in that war's military personnel began with her visit to a San Francisco Veterans Administration hospital in 1965. She said, "That was the moment. I prayed to God to help me help young men in war."

Noel wed soldier Ty Herrington, whom she later described as "a paranoid schizophrenic manic-depressive", following his proposal in a helicopter. He killed himself after they had been married eleven months. She went on to marry three more times.

In 1993, she opened a shelter in Boynton Beach, Florida, providing space for ten to twelve veterans at a time.
