Re: Celebs that served in the Military


One of my favorite movie tough guys was pretty brave in real life. Charles Bronson. Growing up in a Pennsylvania coal mining town will make anyone tough. I know, my father's family was the family of a coal miner and they lived in PA coal mining towns. Bronson enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1943. After being in the 760th Flexible Gunnery Training Squadron he served in Guam with the 61st Bombardment Squadron as a tail gunner on a B-29 Super Fortress. He flew in 25 combat missions over Japan and received a Purple Heart for wounds received in battle. People who knew him said he was a mild mannered guy. He pretty much shunned the Hollywood crowd and preferred the company of his family and few close friends.
