    • I think most of this was in a book I read. I don't believe Ford was on the beach at D-day. He was on a cruiser at first and then got on a Pt boat,
      which came under fire several times from the shore based guns.
      Ford definitely was a big factor in war combat film. He also
      had shrapnel hit him at Midway, he was wounded.
      I think Duke should have been put in raising morale, not a private.
      However Duke's war pictures did raise U.S. morale, I am comfortable
      with that.
      Also Gene Autry was a pilot and flew the Hump,India to China. A
      dangerous job with the limited power of the Aircraft of those days.
