What do you know? Some of the action movies we watch are played by actors who’ve actually trained for real warfare.

She’s truly a Wonder Woman!
Another one of Hollywood’s Veterans, Tom Selleck certainly has a weakness and passion for service. Known as an American actor and film producer, he rose to fame as a result of his role as private investigator, Thomas Magnum, in the television series Magnum, P.I. in the late 1980s.
Tom Selleck enlisted in the California National Guard in the 160th infantry regiment during the Vietnam war, and he was always rather proud of his service. He served from 1967 to 1973, and even after being discharged he still agreed to appear on California National Guard recruiting posters. Because he was also very passionate about his service, he was even quoted saying “I am a veteran, I’m proud of it. We’re all brothers and sisters in that sense.”
