    This is a memorial to Bob Hope's USO shows during WWII, Korea, and Vietnam for US troops. It's not big, just a life-size ring of bronze statuary near the USS Midway and Fish Market restaurant with an audio loop playing Bob Hope jokes, such as, "This is Bob 'command performance' Hope reminding every Nazi in Russia that Crimea doesn't pay." It's a nice little photo op and tribute. Bonus round for 'Family Guy' fans: yep, the look of Glen Quagmire is based on Bob Hope. Giggity.

    They put his recording in a speaker phone telling the jokes Bob said to the crew that actually made me laugh.
