Merry Christmas to G.I. Joe

Title

Merry Christmas to G.I. Joe

Description

"In this 1968 poster by Carl Hubenthal, an American soldier ""G.I. Joe,"" is sitting in a jungle setting, with a recently unwrapped child's jack-in-the-box toy that closely resembles Bob Hope holding a microphone. On the outside of the box is a gift tag declaring, ""Merry Christmas to G.I. Joe.""

Hope performed his first United Service Organizations (USO) show on May 6, 1941, at March Field, California. He continued to travel and entertain troops for the rest of World War II[20] and later during the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the third phase of the Lebanon Civil War, the latter years of the Iran–Iraq War, and the 1990–1991 Persian Gulf War."
