A Hollywood Memorial Day

We honor – by remembering – all of our war heroes this weekend.

As a special Memorial Day post I put together a slide-show of classic Hollywood stars performing patriotic duties.  Whether by enlisting in the armed forces, traveling the country with the Hollywood Victory Caravan, performing on Armed forces radio, working war bond drives or entertaining and serving soldiers at the legendary Hollywood Canteen – they did their part for the war effort.

Here’s a look back lest we forget.
