For a span of 50 years, Bob Hope entertained the men and women of the Armed Forces in every war and conflict since World War II. From war-ravaged Europe to the cold wasteland of Korea and from the steamy jungles of Vietnam to the desert heat of the Middle East, Bob Hope tirelessly brought humor and comfort to countless homesick servicemen desperate for a brief respite from the misery of war. Dressed in military fatigues and displaying his unique, irreverent humor, he became one with his audience, bonding with them in a personal way. He became the witty guy in the next foxhole, commiserating with them about their officers, the weather, the enemy, and the politics that got them there. And he made them laugh.
