    I've often enjoyed seeing his films, even though he's likely best known for his USO Tours to war zones.

    Had the chance to see him live while I was stationed in Subic Bay the PI. He had just finished up as swing through Viet Nam entertaining our guys there. What most people don't know is once the show was over he was very private and didn't want visiters or to mingle. Nothing wrong with that, I salute his support of our nation and it's troops.

    Road to Singapore (1940)
    Road to Zanzibar (1941)
    Road to Morocco (1942)
    Road to Utopia (1946)
    Road to Rio (1947)
    Road to Bali (1952)

    I keep hopeing that someone will step up to the plate to do half the job that Bob Hope did. He came to many of the Air Force bases we were stationed at even if he just stopped over he was the same wonderful man never to tired or busy to shake your hand and say hello. He is truly missed by the military family.
