    I didn't recall seeing Frank Sutton in that long list. He was in the Phillipines with the Army during the retaking.

    If you notice "GSGT Carter" wore a Army Good Conduct medal on his marine unifiorm - that was to honor his service in the US Army.

    Two ex marines, Captain Kangaroo and Mr. Green Jeans. Not sure which branches Dancing Bear, Grandfather, Bunny Rabbit, or Mr. Moose may have served in.

    Jack Soo is probably best remembered for his smart-aleck Detective Sgt. Nick Yemana on Barney Miller (1975).

    He enlisted in the US Army, and was assigned to the famous Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team (RCT)--the most decorated unit in the US Army--and fought in Italy.
