Bob Hope – “You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.”


Dec 23, 1942 – Bob Hope agreed to entertain U.S. airmen in Alaska. It was the first of the traditional Christmas shows. His travel to Alaska, then a U.S. territory, required a special permit. In 1997 Bob Hope was designated an honorary veteran for his humanitarian services to the United States Armed Forces by Congress. He is the only individual in history to have earned this honor. #wwii
