Bob Hope Performs for the Troops

A little beyond the “Unconditional Surrender” statue recently posted is the collection of statues entitled “A National Salute to Bob Hope and the Military” which presents various branches of the military gathered in front of Bob Hope as he entertains them.  He began this labor of love in 1943 and continued for 50 years.  One can see the USS Midway in the background.
