Hollywood Went to War

Number sixteen in our series Hollywood Went to War, was a Hollywood "swinger": Lex Barker, known to many as 'Tarzan'.

In February 1941, ten months before the attack on Pearl Harbor, Barker left his fledgling acting career and enlisted in the US Army. He rose to the rank of major during the war. He was wounded in action (in the head and leg) fighting in Sicily.

Major Barker, we salute you for your service. R.I.P.
