Happy Fourth of July!

Hope everyone has a wonderful and fun Fourth of July weekend.  
In honor of the anniversary of the founding of our great nation, our Cool Conservative of the Day is the brilliant and beloved Bob Hope.  
Star of vaudeville, Broadway, radio, movies and television, Hope was honored five times by the Academy (two honorary Oscars, two special awards, and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award), and awarded an amazing 58 honorary doctorates.

Beyond his great comedic talent, Hope was also well known for his deep love and appreciation for our military, appearing in or hosting nearly 200 USO shows.  Bob Hope was very proud of being the "first and only honorary veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces," after being so designated in a 1997 Resolution of Congress.

In honor of the Fourth of July, please consider joining Bob Hope in supporting the USO.  You can donate online here or learn more about volunteer opportunities with the USO here.

God Bless America, our Troops and their families, and you and your family too this Fourth of July weekend.
