Read an interesting bit a few days ago about Lee Marvin, ultimate hardass. He's buried in Arlington alongside generals. His stone is simple, indicating only that he was a private, USMC. It doesn't say that he earned the Navy Cross for his action on Mt. Suribachi. On a "Tonight Show" talk with Johnny Carson, when Johnny asked, Lee compared his particular action as minor compared to the truly brave actions of his Sgt., Bob Keeshan.

The same posting noted that Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal and saw considerable action.
