It’s no coincidence that they named his tournament The Bob Hope Classic. He was indeed a classic in the highest regard. It never mattered to him where he went for his USO show to entertain the military. He never cared where but he always knew when.

From World War II to Desert Storm, everything in between and even beyond, Hope was there for the troops.
