Bob Hope...Entertaining the Troops!

Bob Hope spent more Christmas holidays away from home than any other entertainer.   His idea of Christmas spirit was to entertain the troops, wherever they were deployed.  Some of you are probably to young to remember him, but he was a legend!  Enjoy.



Mr. Eva was stationed with the Air Force in Greenland and remembers Bob performing for the troops there.  (Very many years ago!)

All we had was Paula Cole on our ship. And Kansas in an Icelandic hangar.
I feel gypped.
It's okay that I wasn't in World War II, though.
If you don't know who Paula Cole is.....that's my point.
Great post.

My sister had the biggest crush on Bob Hope when we were both kids and could never figure it out. As an adult, I can totally see why! So charismatic.

My papaw was a big fan of Bob Hope, so I learned about him when I was very little. Always loved Bob Hope, though. :) He is a legend. Pure class.
