VN148-KC USMC Bob
Here, the comedian is wearing a USMC Field Shirt decorated with no less than 3 x divisional patches of the three US Marine Corps divisions that served in Vietnam. Bob’s headgear is a red ballcap with USMC proudly on the front.
From 1964 to 1972, one of the few constants of the conflict and one of the most eagerly anticipated was the yearly visit by one of America’s most popular comedians… Mr. Bob Hope.
Beginning in WW2 this great entertainer logged millions of miles flying around the globe with his hand-picked tame of singers, dancers and musicians to put on shows for the US Military on airfields, aircraft carriers, army camps, hospitals and dozens of other locations wherever GIs were stationed.
As the numbers of US Military in South Vietnam grew each year so too did the length of each ‘Christmas Show’ and the venues expand.
K&C are releasing 2 versions of this great American comedian as he might have appeared during his 1967/’68 tours.
