Today would have been Bob Hope’s 110 Birthday. His support for US Troops is well know, having performed for soldiers overseas as part of the USO in every major conflict from WWII to Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm. During the Vietnam War he traveled to Vietnam numerous times, performing every Christmas from 1964-1972. A 1997 Act of Congress named Bob Hope an “Honorary Veteran.” The following is just one of the many images of Bob Hope and his shows available online in the Virtual Vietnam Archive, and you can see many of them here.
