BAM.png

The kid who voiced baby Bambi grew up and joined the Marines, where he rose to the rank of sergeant and served as a Drill Instructor before becoming an officer. He then served three tours in Vietnam, where he received a Bronze Star and three Purple Hearts (shot twice, wounded by shrapnel, and knifed). He retired as a major after 25 years of service.

I can just imagine if he did a remake:

Bambi:  What the f*** is your problem, Thumper.  Drop and give me 20 -- NOW! ! !:Smile-angry:

I know a lot of actors that were soldiers before they got into acting, never the reverse though...

Jimmy Stewart, Tyrone Power, Mickey Rooney, Henry Fonda, and Eddie Albert come to mind.

I believe that Carey took up acting after his time in the Marine Corps Reserve.  He might have done both concurrently, but did not start acting before enlisting.
