Share memories of Bob Hope

In brief

May 27, 1998

Bob Hope, America's only honorary war veteran, turns 95 on Friday. If you're among the thousands of people he's entertained over the years, we at The Sun would like to hear from you.

In a career that's spanned everything from vaudeville to compact discs, Hope has emerged not only as one of America's most popular comedians, but also -- thanks to his years of entertaining troops stationed overseas -- one of its most respected citizens.

If you're a veteran, whether of World War II, Korea, Vietnam or Desert Storm, and have fond recollections of Hope's USO shows you'd be willing to share, please call us. If you were there in the early days, saw Hope on stage (either in vaudeville or on Broadway) and would like to share your memories, please call us. Or if you ever met Hope, and would like to go on record with what that meeting meant to you, please call us.

To leave your message, call SunDial at 410-783-1800 and enter ** code 6123. SunDial numbers for surrounding counties can be found on Page 2B.
