The list of american actors who served is a long one. Almost any of the actors who emerged after WWII, had done therir part. James Wire's 3 book series is among the best on the subject. "Stars in Blue" dealt with actors in Navy/coast guard service -1920s to Korea. "Stars in the Corps" with marines for the same period and "Stars in Khaki" dealt with the army and air service from the Spanish American war to Viet Nam.

As far as I know, the US volunteers in Spanish Civil War ("A. Lincoln" battalion and so on) were entirelly on their own, so there could be no question of them being part of "the army or the air service". I'm not sure if in their case the word "served" fits the situation.

Spanish-American War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spanish%E2%80%93American_War), 1898, is NOT the same as Spanish Civil War (1936-1939)!!!

I know, I know - you're right, my bad! :lol:

I simply didn't pay enough attention to the post I was answering. I was "fixed" on the WW 2 (pre-and post) period.
