The Bob Hope Legacy is proud to partner with the USO to create the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program. In the spirit of Bob Hope and his dedication for bringing military families together, the program is largely driven by virtual, on-demand story time offerings that will help the USO extend its reach and connect an estimated 33,000 military families around the globe through reading this year. The Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program focuses on:
- Bringing story time on demand around the globe
- Helping military kids stay connected through reading
- Supporting local reading programs in many USO locations around the world
For more than six decades – from World War II through Vietnam to the Gulf War – Bob Hope traveled the world, visiting remote outposts and isolated battleships to put on USO shows to support our nation’s service members and their families. His passion and commitment for helping keep troops and families stay connected from halfway around the globe lives on today.
