If you are a Bob Hope this is a must. Through the speakers you can hear Bob speaking to the troops. I felt as if I was there. This statue is not far from the Unconditional Surrender Statue.

A small plaza behind the USS Midway museum, behind a hedge, has a group of bronze statues showing Bob Hope entertaining a mixed group of US service persons. There are hidden speakers and you can hear Bob Hope running through one of his shows.

As you learn about Bob Hope, you'll learn how tirelessly he worked to entertain our troops around the world, no matter what the situation. He brought great joy to those who were willing to pay the ultimate sacrifice for us!

Great salute complete with statues depicting Bob Hope addressing the troops. It was fun to walk around each statue and to read about how Bob was an important fixture in keeping up troop morale back in the day. Perfect place for this salute as well!
