10 People You Didn't Know Were U.S. Marines

Here's an interesting and surprising list of celebrities who were leathernecks, including Bozo the Clown, Pat Robertson, and even Captain Kangaroo!

Prior to being Clarabell the Clown on The Howdy Doody Show and then the kindly Captain Kangaroo, Bob Keeshan was a trained killer. An urban legend claiming that he fought alongside actor Lee Marvin on Iwo Jima is false. Keeshan never saw combat because the war was over by the time he was of enlistment age (Lee Marvin was indeed a leatherneck who was wounded during the Battle of Saipan, but was not at Iwo Jima).

Pat Robertson is a complete phoney, and it doesn't surprise me of what I've read. As for the rest, a few made sense, but the rest were a surprise.
