When I was growing up, one bright spot in the long, gloomy stretch of winter from Christmas to Opening Day was the Bob Hope Christmas Special. Hope began visiting American troops in war zones during World War Two, so in the 1960s and 1970s, he and his entourage ventured to Southeast Asia every December. Below is the entire 90-minute long 1967 Bob Hope Christmas Special. Whether you’re old enough to remember Bob Hope or so young that you’re asking “Bob Who?”, jump around inside the clip and catch some of his humor which is still amazing. And, just as Hope brought attention to those Americans in the armed services who were away from home during the holidays, remember our service members around the world today.
