Here is an interesting piece from friend Rhonda Mata that may surprise some of you. We usually think of Hollywood types trying to take the easy way out of trouble but this information about Lee Marvin, Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo), and Mr. Rogers may surprise you even more.
In a time when many Hollywood stars served their country in the armed forces often in rear echelon posts where they were carefully protected, only to be trotted out to perform for the cameras in war bond promotions, Lee Marvin was a genuine hero. He won the Navy Cross at Iwo Jima . There is only one higher Naval award... the Medal Of Honor.
