Bob Hope

Postby tomfen » Sun Feb 22, 2009 11:29 am

In an effort to raise Fox Company postings from extintion I offer this tidbit of information:

For Christmas, my brother (Army ROTC Officer 68-83) gave me a framed drawing of Bob Hope entering heaven with the greeting 'there are a lot of troops waiting for you Mr Hope'. Nice gift. My Mother, who is 90, recently saw the picture on my wall and asked, 'did you see Bob Hope in Viet Nam'?

In all my letters home I never let on where we were or what we were doing. Even after returning home, I never mentioned to either parent anything that happened with Fox Co 2/9 in 1967/68. So I guess the question was appropriate 40 years later. I could only smile and say, 'No Mom, I must have missed him'.

Here's a good book--'About Face', David Hackworth Author...............every grunt should read this.
