"In 1944, Mickey Rooney enlisted in the US Army. He served more than 21 months, until shortly after the end of World War II. During and after the war he helped entertain the troops and spent part of the time as a radio personality on the American Forces Network. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Army Good Conduct Medal, American Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and World War II Victory Medal for his military service."
Broderick Crawford enlisted in the US Army Air Corps during WWII. He was assigned to the Armed Forces Network and sent to Britain in 1944 as a Sergeant serving as an announcer for the Glenn Miller American Band.
Paul Harvey 1918 -2009 American radio broadcaster. Best known for The Rest of the Story. I first heard him on the Armed Forces network while in Vietnam in 1972. I found his social commentary was always fair and hopeful for the future and certainly prophetic in nature. He was folksy and spoke with a timbre of authoritative research.
