I'm amazed by the number of actors, and other entertainers, who left their hollywood life when WWII broke out, and joined the military and went to war.. And not easy special service jobs.. They were on ships, and in the air, and in the infantry.. Next to bakers, and mechanics, and office workers, and farmers, and Americans from all walks of life.. All out there fighting..And, when the war was over, they came back to hollywood and tried to pick up where they left off..Just Americans who, in a time of need, did what they had to do, and then came back and went on with their lives..

My dad joined the army a few days after Pearl Harbor.. So did his brothers.. He fought in north Africa, Sicily, Germany, and France.. He landed on Omaha Red on D-Day.. He never talked much about the combat decorations he brought back.. He felt the real heros were the ones who never made it to the beach..And their families back home..And I expect my dad and his fellow soldiers fought to make sure that those guys who never made it to the beach didn't die in vain..My mom worked in a parachute factory..They were amazing people..And they were representative of a whole country....and a whole generation..

And remember, for each man in the field, it takes between 4 and 12 support people (depending on the era and theatre) either behind the lines, back at the base, or back home, just to keep that fighting man supplied, fed, doctored, and transported.

When Luke Skywalker is off defending his world, Rosie The Riveter is keeping the home world factories humming.

I went to some bar/restaurant somewhere at some time many years back and I don't remember how good the food was or what the place was called, (It may have been a bar called The Doghouse ?)
I do remember the restroom doors. One said "Pointers" and the other said "Setters" !

In europe, most of larger military bases have a local place for the soldiers who like hunting, and fishing, and skeet and trap shooting, to hang out and practice their past time... They call them the "Rod & Gun Club"... They use the same designations on their restroom doors.

Great poster, rickers ..

Here is a photo of the location of my "Rod And Gun Club" I hooked a Small-mouth Bass just a minute or two before I floated past this Cow Elk feeding her calf.
