In his 30's, in the middle of an illustrious baseball career, Ted Williams got recalled as a Marine pilot in Korea, and his F9F Panther got shot up and damaged during a raid.

He eventually found a safe landing at a USAF base.

Naturally, this second tour meant that his career totals were lower than they would have been, but he never complained. He considered what he did to be his duty to his country, and kept his mouth shut.

I think we can assume that he did not have lady's underwear on during any of this.

Don't ever let anyone tell you we're not declining as a civilization.

Mike, I like your juxtaposition of Ted Williams and today's "stars." I should post it. Jeff
