The US Navy has a cargo ship ship named for the famous entertainer. Who knew? Certainly not me. He lived to be 100 years old.
Celebrated for his long career performing United Service Organizations (USO) shows to entertain active service American military personnel—he made 57 tours for the USO between 1941 and 1991—Hope was declared an honorary veteran of the United States Armed Forces in 1997 by act of the U.S. Congress. - Wikipedia
