A national tribute to Bob Hope and the military.
What better way to make the transition from the Korean War back to WWII than with paying a tribute to a man who went far out of his way to bring servicemen and women a smile!
Perhaps you fondly remember Bob Hope. Millions do. I do.
In San Diego, a fantastic tribute to the legendary comedian can be found on the Greatest Generation Walk, just south of the USS Midway Museum. Sixteen life-sized bronze figures show Bob doing a comedy routine for assorted American service members from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard. An outdoor speaker plays old recordings of him telling his inimitable jokes. For five decades Bob Hope entertained the troops during his many USO tours.
Thanks for the memories.
