Happy Veterans Day! Surprising Celebrities Who Were In The Military


With Veteran’s Day here, we figured what better way to celebrate the holiday than to thank those who have served and are currently serving? Though we don’t often think of it, plenty of our most loved celebrities are veterans, as we pointed out in our list on Memorial Day. Here are 14 more celebrities who were in the military and have done their rightful duty. Salute!

  • Thank you Navy

    I’m sure glad that I joined the military. It helped gave me the guidance and stability I so desperately needed and helped to steer me away from trouble and becoming part of the negative statistics.

    Jackie Robinson was dayum fine! Thank you to everyone who’s served our country. Happy Veterans Day!

  • Ken Kniech

    Johnny Cash served in the *US* Army, not the Soviet Army. Awesome proof reading guys.

  • Lola

    Agreed. Poiter was first to win Best Actor Category. McDaniel (no s) was the first African American to win Academy Award EVER. She won for Supporting Actress, but she was the very first to win an Oscar.

    How can Madam Noire mention Sugar Ray Robinson without mentioning the man right next to him in the picture, Joe Louis??!!!

      I was thinking the same thing, Joe Louis’s induction was a bit of a media circus at the time because he was an established boxer when he chose to enlist.

    forgot Mystikal and Shaggy

    Sidney Poiter was not the first African-American to win the Academy Award. Hattie McDaniels, who won in 1939, was. Sidney was the first African-American MALE to win the award, in 1963. A little fact-checking and proofreading goes a long way.

    That said, thank you to all who (not whom) have served.

  • Kam

    Thank you to all whom have served.

  • Bren
