Ernie Pyle, War Correspondent. Would be my guess...
Also should have mentioned he was killed in action while covering the war on Okinawa, he was always in there with the troops, getting their story out to the folks back home...
rosie the riveter
Lot's of good answers here today !
Because you said "hero" and not "Heroine"(Rosie's Out).
Ernie Pyle served at one time(Navy reserve).
I'm going to have to go with John Wayne. All his movies(WW II) were GREAT ! "The Fighting SeaBee's" was the only one(besides "The Shootist") that he was "killed" in.
How about FDR?
I WOULD HAZARD A GUESS THAT IT IS EITHER ROOSEVELT'S SON OR HOW ABOUT HEMINGWWAY? HE WAS A WAR CORRESPONDENT THAT NEVER FOUGHT. AM I RIGHT ABOUT HEMINGWAY? HE IS MY BEST GUESS, OH AND BY THE WAY, MY FAVORITE AUTHOR.
2poppa got, it was the Duke. The military wouldn't take him because of a football injury (knee) he suffered at USC. Apparently it always bothered him, not helped any by his buddy John Ford, who used to rib him about it all the time.
BTW Hemingway served in WWI.
+ 1 For you 2Poppa. Congrats.
Yeah Del, your right. As an ambulance driver?
Got a big piece of his package blown off!
Had a lot to do with his drinking problam later in life.
problem! Sorry, Friday night!
My guess was also FDR.
Frank Sinatra was another one who wasn't a real soldier but played one in the movies.
