Actor/comedian/game show host Drew Carey served 6 years in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. When Time Magazine asked him what events in life made him who he is, Carey replied "the Marine Corps. It instilled a great sense of discipline that I can call on when I need to." Obviously he enjoyed being a jarhead because he has kept his Marine crew cut through most of his stage and TV career.
United States Marine Corps F4U Corsair fighter-bombers on Tarawa Atoll in the central Pacific. Such was the demand for this plane that Vought, the original manufacturer, was soon being supplemented by Goodyear and Brewster. Eventually the Corsair won a record as the one plane with the longest production run of any piston-engined fighter in U.S. history (1942–53).
