'Bob Hope Salutes The Troops' DVD Review
The Christmas show that aired in 1963 was taped from the 1962 Chrismas tour that included places like Japan, Korea, Guam, the Philippines, Okinawa, Formosa and the USS Kitty Hawk would also have a show. The show would include Miss America's Amadee Chabot, Lana Turner, and former Miss America Anita Bryant nothing was to good for our troops.
Marie Osmond, Jill St. John, Roman Gabriel, Lola Falana, Redd Foxx would join Bob all over the world to perform for our men and women in uniform. Bob wanted to bring as many people as he could to boost the moral of our troops. He wanted to show them what they were fighting for.
Bob took the show to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Shield in January 1991. Marie Osmond and Ann Jillian and the Pointer Sisters would perform for our men and women that year. The troops loved this show and so did the American public.
