Celebrities Who Served In The Military – Some Of Them Should Be Considered National Heroes!
James Earl Jones – US Infantry
James Earl Jones first received a commission as a second lieutenant during the Korean War. In 1953, he reported to attend the Infantry Officers Basic Course at Fort Benning and even received training to be part of the U.S. Army Rangers. However, he wasn’t able to finish it.
Before he left the army, he was able to become a first lieutenant. Things eventually worked out for him as he voiced the second most powerful Sith Lord in Star Wars history and Mufasa in the iconic Disney animated film Lion King. Eventually, voice acting proved to be what he was born to do.
