Did you know military actor/tough guy Tom Berenger never served a minute in the military?  He graduated from High School in 1967, at the height of the draft and the Vietnam War. He was actually a flight attendant in 1972 before becoming an actor. I guess you never know.

yes, I knew that.

Just a little tidbit. I didn't know that. He sure can "play the part".

Many actors that play those parts were never in the military! It's Hollywood!
Sylvester Stallone is another example.

I know. It's a testament to how easily people like myself can be fooled.
I was watching The Hatfields and the McCoys last night, and on a whim looked up Tom Berenger. A flight attendant???? (omg)
I knew about Stallone, but he's not so convincing as Tom Berenger.

Tom Berenger. He's been in a lot of movies but my favorite for him was Major League. If you watched that one he was the aged catcher.

I've heard the name, and might have seen him, but I just can't place him. Thanks for the info.

I don't mind actors who have never served in the military, portraying military personnel in movies. Some actors who never served, like Gary Sinise, are great supporters of our military and veterans.
I'm not a fan of actors who are anti military portraying soldiers and making money off it though.

Did you NOT know that ACTORS are in fact our court jesters on a "stage" just to entertain WE THE PEOPLE during our down time after work?? Do you not know that ACTORS are just those people whose ONLY contribution to our great country is to ONLY convincingly PRETEND to be other people? Did you really think that Tom Hanks served our country during WW2 where he as TOM HANKS literally SAVED Private Ryan's life?? ugh.

Yet here you are on this website as a "woke" American giving us all a heads up about the ACTOR Tom Berenger never actually serving a minute in the military...yeah we know that because he's an ACTOR who played a character in a freakin' MOVIE.
Did you know that President Barack Obama as our CIC who had control over our country's ECONOMY, had never ever worked a day in his life in the private sector OR ran a business himself, yet you all relied on him to run our country's economy because WHY???????????????????????

I know. Actually, Sheen was pretty good in that movie as was the whole cast. What was it Sgt. "Red" O'Neill said to Sgt. Barnes as they all dug in on the hill? "I got a bad feelin' about this one da wei"
