    Interesting, I knew of a lot of the "older" actors as my great uncle on holidays at my house would park his butt in front of the TV and would usually point out any actor or actress that served and particularly those that where veterans.

    Be interesting to see what those folks think about the Marines today. i grew up around Vets and you would never know for the most part.

    So Dan Rather was never a Marine. He never made it through boot camp.

    Brian Dennehy
    The award-winning actor has raised red flags numerous times during his career for falsely claiming he served in Vietnam. While Dennehy was a Marine for four years, he was never in combat during the Vietnam War, a fallacy he admitted in 1998.Feb 24, 2015

    He claimed to have done a five year tour in Vietnam, and some accounts are that he is still lying today!

    You trying to say Marines are clowns, are ya!?!?

    LoL...I heard that before, and I kinda wish he was in this slideshow. I was real surprised at a few of the characters, and it connected the dots on a few others.

    It’s a different journey for every one of us, but we all start off at the same place (or one of two places, but doing similar things).

    Thanks for sharing!
