May 29, 2009|Associated Press

Bob Hope is making one more appearance with the troops.

The comedian famed for his tireless travel to entertain American military personnel around the world is being honored with a 44-cent postage stamp today in ceremonies aboard the aircraft carrier Midway in San Diego.

"I think that he would be thrilled, absolutely honored and love the thought of it," said his daughter, Linda Hope.

Hope made two appearances aboard the Midway in a career launched in the 1930s and including military shows from World War II to the Persian Gulf. He died in 2003 at age 100. His widow, Dolores Hope, celebrated her 100th birthday Wednesday night in L.A.
