Bob Hope and the USO

Do any of you know who is going to attempt to fill the shoes of Bob Hope? Bob and the USO brought some holiday cheer to millions of young Soldiers and Airmen, who were sent off to fight the various wars that our government feels need to be fought. I haven't seen any of the news folks talking about this subject.
So, what do you all think? Should we send these, servents of the people, off to bleed and perhaps die in some far off place, and then just pretend that you and I didn't send them off to war. Well we did, you and I. Let's make sure we send them a little cheer overdays. We owe them that and so much more.
Oh, and if you don't know who Bob Hope is....Well,
all I can say is...your teachers didn't quite live up to what we owe Bob, and the troops he entertained.

I miss ol Bob "Join the Peace Corps" Hope. He was one of a kind. Last I heard, different entertainers are going to entertain the troops. Some of them go thru the USO, I think some go independently. You have a lot of good things to say. Might want to google "USO" and find out what's going on there. I don't think ANYone can fill Bob Hope's shoes. Just like I don't think anyone can fill Jerry Lewis' shoes. Take care.

I don't miss him at all. Every time he came to Vietnam they sent us boonie rats out in the field to protect his butt while the rear echelon supply clerks and office bous went to see his entertainment.
