In 1968 I was on temporary duty with the Navy in San Diego. I was told that there was a Bob Hope show, but that the tickets were $25 each. I was making $70 a month. I haven't much been interested in Bob Hope since.

I would have thought they would have given servicemen a free ticket.

If it was a USO event, I would have thought so too. Everything with the USO was (still is, I guess) privately funded. The people who performed in the shows didn't get paid. I think people then thought they were good publicity as well as acts of charity. From Founded in the 1940s - History of the USO ? The 1940's ? 1940-1949 ? Fashion History Movies Music:

President Roosevelt, aware that troops needed the occasional "break" from their daily routine, approached several private organizations and challenged them to pool their resources to provide recreational and entertainment services for these service personnel. In February 1941, the USO was chartered and soon began "Camp Shows" at bases within the U.S. Popular entertainers selflessly volunteered to perform for free, and with the U.S. entry into WWII after Pearl Harbor, expanded their services to U.S. outposts globally.

Celebrities offering their services represented every corner of show business. Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, Humphrey Bogart, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Laurel & Hardy, the Marx Brothers, Jack Benny, Lucille Ball, The Rockettes, Glenn Miller, James Cagney, Irving Berlin, Al Jolson, Fred Astaire and countless other "legends" entertained troops during the 1940s, and in later years, iconic figures such as Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis, Danny Kaye, John Wayne, Sammy Davis, Jr., Raquel Welch, Ann-Margret and Redd Foxx entertained troops in both Korea and Vietnam. In more recent years, U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan have attended shows featuring Stephen Colbert, Craig Ferguson, Kellie Pickler, Toby Keith, Dane Cook and Carrie Underwood, to mention only a few. A very popular "show" during recent Christmas appearances has been WWE RAW (World Wrestling Entertainment) matches.

Look closely at the picture you posted. Do you feel that your Christian brothers are edified by being encouraged to drool over immodest women?

There are many reasons to look askance at Bob Hope's "charity" work. I cited my experience just to poke a hole in the image propagated by some that celebrity icons should be taken as secular saints.

James 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
