Bob brought Hope

January 14, 2012

I ran across this video and thought it would be nice to remember another kind of hero. Bob Hope was one of a kind, always supportive of the troops, he brought hope to those fighting, and kept up the morale.

“For nearly six decades, be the country at war or at peace, Bob, with a band of Hollywood gypsies, traveled the globe to entertain our service men and women.” –

His was a different type of service, but service none the less, I think he is worthy of remembrance here. I hope that you all do as well.

      I looked up his biography, wondering from his facial features if he might not be of eastern european origins and found he was born in England, in London, then Bristol, before going to the States. And that he lived to be just over 100!

    Bob Hope was one of a kind. Thanks for reminding us of what a great American, and how special he was.
