Military Veterans who were also Hollywood Stars

Just about all of the old movie stars who served in the military are dead now. They made up most of the very famous/very good in the acting profession. The list linked below covers many of them.

There are many more: Paul Newman, Gene Hackman, Harvey Keitel, Humphrey Bogart (Bogart supposedly got his trademark scar from a shrapnel wound while at sea, leading to his characteristic lisp), George C. Scott, Clint Eastwood, Mr. T, Ice-T, Johnny Cash, Morgan Freeman, Chuck Norris, James Earl Jones, Dennis Franz, Rob Riggle and, Hey, Elvis Presley.

Maybe being Vets helped them become great.
