Entebbe Day (1977)

1977 Dry Bones cartoon - celebrating Entebbe Day.
I drew this cartoon exactly thirty years ago. July 4th 1977. It was the first anniversary of that amazing, daring rescue at Entebbe Airport. The operation had not only snatched the hostages out of their place of captivity, but had also dragged the country out of the dark depths of despair.

Here's the cartoon that I'd done the year before, when the rescue took place.
