10 Celebrities Who Served In The Military

Serving in the military is considered one of the most honorable, brave things anyone can do with their lives, as it is highly dangerous at certain points in time. Men and women serve in multiple branches, including the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. However, most people don’t know that a lot of the well known celebrities we grew up loving actually spent some time serving in one of these military branches. The danger and sacrifice they laid down should be honored just like anyone else who spent time in the armed forces, though. Here are ten celebrities who risked their lives in the military.

Elvis Presley

Not long after becoming known as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army as a private assigned to Fort Smith in Arkansas. Following his basic training at Fort Hood, Presley became a part of the 3rd Armored Division in Friedberg, Germany.

Tom Selleck

Tom Selleck is mostly known for his role as the private investigator on Magnum P.I., but he was also once a part of the 160th Infantry Regiment for the California Army National Guard. During the course of his time in the military, Selleck was stationed in Los Angeles to help control the Watts Riots.
