Hope Springs Eternal

Re "Bob Hope Honored on His 99th Birthday," May 30: There is no way the American servicemen can thank Bob Hope enough for the many visits he made to entertain the GIs. I saw him in Panama in 1944, about the same time Eleanor Roosevelt was visiting military bases. Bob's opening remark was, "Well, I beat Eleanor to Panama."
