Not to put too fine a point on it, but wasn’t Eddie Albert a landing craft “driver” in one or more of the most horrendous Pacific island invasions?
Aside from the “Hollywood” crowd, I believe Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Rogers, of children’s television fame, were decorated combat veterans.

Captain Kangaroo joined the Marine Corps, but graduated from training just after the war ended. Mr. Rogers is not, to my knowlege, a veteran.
