Yeah, I once heard Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal. We used it as a conversation chuckle when I was in the Navy. Being called a "Mr. Rogers" in the Navy was a way of complimenting the new guys without them even knowing it. New guys always thought it was an insult.

Unfortunately, most urban legend sites have chalked Mr. Rogers' military career to mere urban legend and nothing more. They say he wasn't in the military.

Mr. Rogers (Fred McFeely Rogers) never served in the military in any capacity.

Captain Kangaroo did enlist in the Marines.. but did so too late to see any action during WWII. Signed up several weeks after the fighting at Iwo Jima.

Lee Marvin did see action. was wounded and did receive a Purple Heart. Not a Navy Cross. and he was wounded at Saipan not Iwo Jima.

Would have been a fun story.. but no dice

I wasn't sure about Captain Kangaroo.. But as soon as I read this thing, I knew Mr. Rogers was no navy seal LOL

You know, talking about the military. In Florida there was a ship named The Sullivan, the reason was years ago there were 5 brothers , last name Sullivan. All 5 brothers served in the navy, and all 5 served on the same ship. Also the ship they were on sank killing all 5 brothers. So they named a ship after them.

Quote:
The five Sullivan Brothers were lost when the ship to which all five were assigned, USS Juneau (CL-52) was sunk on 13 November 1942. Many memorial efforts have honored the five brothers. Since their loss much confusion has resulted from the many myths surrounding both the Sullivan brothers and the Navy's policy regarding family members serving together at sea.

Hey Pie Thanks for saving my ass here and keeping the thread going. I have read about those five brothers I did not know the ship was named after them. I think there was the same kind of real life deal behind the Private Ryan movie but I dare not make a guess I am sure LN can help us with that right Help LN I need help

LOL , I do remember hearing the story about the Sulivan brothers? supposedly why brothers aren't allowed to serve together on the same ship ?
or something to that affect ?

Seems there's a song out there about the Sulivans ?

Other than that, I know no particulars.

"The five Sullivan Brothers

On board USS Juneau (CL-52) at the time of her commissioning ceremonies at the New York Navy Yard, 14 February 1942. All were lost with the ship following the 13 November 1942 Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. The brothers are (from left to right): Joseph, Francis, Albert, Madison and George Sullivan.

U.S. Naval Historical Center Photograph."




So who remembers "Sullivan" by Caroline's Spine?
http://www.myspacemusicvideos.us/video.php?id=2021

it's not hard to reach back to the day
underneath that iowa sun
running to the tower of waterloo
looking for the Sullivan's train to come
and his five boys would run to the top
and salute him as he went by
first we'd wave hello
then we'd wave goodbye
goodbye

it's not hard to reach back to the days
after the attack on pearl
overnight my buddies turned into men
running out of time for games and girls
and the Sullivan boys were not overlooked
Uncle Sam'll call them each by name
the very next day they left on a mystery train

say goodbye, Mrs. Sullivan
and don't you cry
"-We regret to inform you
the Navy has taken your sons away-"
all five... so put your blue stars in the window

it's not hard to reach back to her smile
when she'd recieve a letter
and the letters they sounded generally the same
they said if they couldn't be home
but at least they were together
on a mighty fighting battleship
somewhere in the South Pacific
the letters never got much more specific

say goodbye, Mrs. Sullivan
and don't you cry
"-We regret to inform you
the Navy is keeping your sons away-"
all five... so keep your blue star in the window

it's not hard to reach back to the day
when the war finally came home
Uncle Sam'll send you a telegram
so he doesn't have to tell you over the phone
i heard she cracked up
when they found out what the war had cost
when all five of her boys were lost...

say goodbye, Mrs. Sullivan
go ahead and cry
"-We regret to inform you
that all your sons have passed away-"
all five... so change your blue star to gold

blue star to gold
