Brave Celebrities Who Served Their Country In The Army

Jimmy Stewart – US Air Force

Jimmy Stewart is thought of as the first Hollywood star to join the Army while in WWII. His first try to enlist came in 1940, but his weight didn’t match his height standards, so he returned in 1941 (after a lot of exercising!) and this time passing the tests.

He joined the Air Corps and was elevated to a squadron commander in the 445th Bombardment Group. Here, he led 20 combat operations across Europe. Stewart left the Air Force in 1968, and America gave him with a Distinguished Flying Cross for his service to his country
