For America's great soldiers....
There are, today, admirable stars who travel far to entertain our troops. But there was only one Bob Hope. English-born (as Leslie Hope), he made America his home and made our soldiers feel at home. And he made those of us back home feel more keenly the debt, one that never can be fully repaid, that we owe our troops. Though we have at times failed them, they have never failed us.
Surely we will never see Bob Hope's like again.
Bottom Line. Mr. Hope, thanks for the memories. And to all LFTC readers, may 2012 bring you & your families much happiness.
