Another one died that I had not known was still alive. Too bad our media ignores the old stars
from a quick peek at IMBD, it looks like he was still working.
He was in bad shape. His ninth or tenth wife had him doing local cable TV commercials which she starred in while he walked back and forth wordlessly in the background. It was disturbing and sad to watch.
He had been reported as dead at least 4 times I know of.
If it’s true this time, then I sent prayers for his family, for we’ve lost another great one.
He also served his country in WW2. RIP Mickey Rooney, you will be missed.
In 1944, Rooney enlisted in the United States 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 in America and Europe, and spent part of the time as a radio personality on the American Forces Network and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for entertaining troops in combat zones. In addition to the Bronze Star Medal, Rooney also received the Army Good Conduct Medal, American Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, and World War II Victory Medal for his military service.
