                   IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

                              June 4, 1997

Received; read twice and referred to the Committee on Veterans' Affairs

                           September 4, 1997

               Reported by Mr. Specter, without amendment

                            JOINT RESOLUTION


 
  To confer status as an honorary veteran of the United States Armed 
                  Forces on Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope.

Whereas the United States has never before conferred status as an honorary 
        veteran of the United States Armed Forces on an individual, and such 
        status is and should remain an extraordinary honor not lightly conferred 
        nor frequently granted;
Whereas the lifetime of accomplishments and service of Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope 
        on behalf of United States military servicemembers fully justifies the 
        conferring of such status;
Whereas Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope is himself not a veteran, having attempted to 
        enlist in the Armed Forces to serve his country during World War II, but 
        being informed that the greatest service he could provide the Nation was 
        as a civilian entertainer for the troops;
Whereas during, World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, and the 
        Persian Gulf War and throughout the Cold War, Bob Hope traveled to visit 
        and entertain millions of United States servicemembers in numerous 
        countries, on ships at sea, and in combat zones ashore;
Whereas Bob Hope has been awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, the Presidential 
        Medal of Freedom, the Distinguished Service Medal of each of the 
        branches of the Armed Forces, and more than 100 citations and awards 
        from national veterans service organizations and civic and humanitarian 
        organizations; and
Whereas Bob Hope has given unselfishly of his time for over a half century to be 
        with United States servicemembers on foreign shores, working tirelessly 
        to bring a spirit of humor and cheer to millions of servicemembers 
        during their loneliest moments, and thereby extending for the American 
        people a touch of home away from home: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled, That Congress--
            (1) extends its gratitude, on behalf of the American 
        people, to Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope for his lifetime of 
        accomplishments and service on behalf of United States military 
        servicemembers; and
            (2) confers upon Leslie Townes (Bob) Hope the status of an 
        honorary veteran of the United States Armed Forces.

            Passed the House of Representatives June 3, 1997.

            Attest:

                                                ROBIN H. CARLE,

                                                                 Clerk.
