Ed McMahon - Most Proud of His Marine Service

Big Hat Tip: Blackfive

You gotta ask yourself how a former Marine like Ed McMahon dies and his service as a Marine (see B5 story) does not even get a mention in America by "American Media".

There is something happenin here, and what it is actually Is perfectly clear.
This tune is so well known I thought was gonna be corny to put it in here but after listening to it, it's actually pretty Aprapos to what's happenin here.

Anyway, I started maintaining a list now of celebrities from the 'Greatest Generation' that served America. There are certainly publications on the subject as well. First on my list are:

Audey Murphy - In 27 months of combat action, Murphy became one of the most highly decorated United States soldiers of World War II

Lee Marvin - Marvin left school to join the United States Marine Corps, serving as a Scout Sniper in the 4th Marine Division

Jimmy Stewart - In 1966, Brigadier General James Stewart flew as a non-duty observer in a B-52 on a bombing mission during the Vietnam conflict

I cannot think of a single celebrity today who has served in the military, though there are quite a few who support the military by performing for the troops in country. Maybe this is one reason the celebrity obsessed media don't like to draw attention to the service of others like Edward McMahon.
