Clint Eastwood met Martin Milner, David Janssen, and Richard Long while serving. As Veterans Day arrives, we say thank you to our military veterans.

Throughout our history there have been many veterans who became famous. Some because of their leadership and others due to their bravery.
A lot of veterans became famous after their service in the military because of success in the careers they chose.

Each year, we honor those who have served on Veterans Day. To help commemorate the day, we've compiled a list of some well-known veterans.

Famed actor, director and producer Eastwood was drafted into the military in 1950, after the Korean War began. He lucked into a job as a swimming instructor after Basic and remained at Ft. Ord. He worked nights and weekends as a bouncer at the NCO club.

The Academy Award winner met a number of other actor-soldiers (Martin Milner, David Janssen, and Richard Long) during his time in service.
