"Bob Hope has been cheered and loved by America's fighting men and women for at least two generations. Through ten presidents and three wars he has been on battlefields from North Africa, Europe, and the South Pacific to Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf. This is Bob Hope's story of being 'there' with humor and jokes. The world is his vaudeville circuit and no one has been safe from his jokes from presidents to dictators. It's all here, the fun, the laughs, the heartache, the danger." [many of his one liners and jokes to the troops are here, making us remember that, with humor, he reflected the spirit of our country.]
