Hollywood Goes to War - Not

I recently heard a comment that while we celebrate the Declaration of Independence on Independence Day, it was not the Declaration that is the reason for our country; it is the Continental Army. Without George Washington's desperate professional army of volunteers, independence would not have been possible.

Our military has a long tradition of being made up of volunteers. Since Hollywood is well known for it's support of the Armed Forces, I would like to recognize those actors that have set aside their careers to serve their country such as:

George Clooney

Brad Pitt

Jeremy Renner

Matt Damon

Tobey Maguire

Tom Cruise

Denzel Washington

Ben Stiller

Nicolas Cage

Well, actually, none of these actors left their careers to serve in the military, they just play soldiers with fake guns in the movies.

However, there was once a Hollywood where some of the biggest stars left their careers to serve their country.  These included:

Douglas Fairbanks Jr.

Henry Fonda

Clark Gable

Ronald Reagan

Mickey Rooney

Jimmy Stewart

Enjoy your Independence Day and remember the type of people that made it possible.
