There was something passed on e-mail Saturday (when we got it) to the effect that Fred Rogers was a WWII Navy Seal war hero, and that his sweaters covered tattoos.
In the same mail was a story about Lee Marvin telling Johnny Carson, on his show, that the bravest soldier he ever saw was a sergeant at Iwo Jima. That sergeant was Bob Keeshan.
These bits of info stretch credibility, it seems to me. Has anyone heard of Mr Rogers or Captain Kangaroo as war heroes before?
