When you think of entertaining the troops, what names pop to mind? Cuba Gooding Jr.? Marc Anthony? Celine Dion? All of them and more are present tonight at 9 for the CBS special "Rockin' for the USA: A National Salute to the U.S. Military," taped aboard the country's newest aircraft carrier, the Harry S. Truman, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. With Memorial Day weekend taking on special significance, this variety show indulges in some ol'-fashioned flag-waving. The only thing missing is Bob Hope.

Upon reading Ernesto Lechner's review of the Marc Anthony concert ("A Unilateral, Bilingual Success," March 8), I quickly noticed an error: "In his first Southern California concert after becoming a . . .

We here in San Diego consider ourselves not only Southern Californians, but close cousins with Los Angeles and the Wiltern.

In his first Southern California concert after becoming a (insert drum roll here) "crossover phenomenon," Marc Anthony was received with hysterical fervor Monday at the Wiltern Theatre.
