Ronald Reagan. Someone in the Pentagon decided he'd be most useful making Army training films. Go figure.

If you are including "notables" on your list of WWII veterans, let's add Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Bob Dole and George H.W. Bush.

Now let's play "Sesame Street:" On that list - "one of these things is not like the others...." Which of the above veterans is not like the others, and why?

Well some folks say that Eisenhower was not 'in' combat, but he was in WW1 I was told. Bush 2 was a National Guard

But I'm not sure

Not to spoil it, but I think there is a website that has all the celebrities listed who served in WW2 - Kris Kristofferson was a helicopter pilot in vietnam

OK so I do not think Eisenhower ever saw combat. Lyndon Johnson was a congressman from Texas and did one mission in the Pacific for which he was awarded the silver start. He was never in the military. The Army wanted more money and he was on the appropriations committee.
