Re: Celebs that served in the Military


No. I have some athletes in there too. We could include politicians too. I guess anyone who is or was in the public eye. I became interested in it because I like looking up people in movies and TV and I was surprised at how many actors saw combat in both world wars, Korea and Vietnam. Some were surprising like Paul Newman, James Arness, Walter Brennan, Mel Brooks and others.

In reading about people that served there are also those who didn't. Ward Bond tried to enlist but was turned down because he had epilepsy. Robert Horton was turned down because he had a deformed kidney. Joel McCray was turned down because he was too old.

I think it's interesting. I intend to add in some I posted on before this was made a stickie, and I think some others in this list deserve to have more written about them, like Audie Murphy.
