Meet Major Donnie Dunagan, who was the youngest Marine Drill Instructor ever. He served three tours of duty in Vietnam, and was wounded several times. During the Tet offensive, Dunagan was shot in the back of the head and in the stomach (among other places), and by the time he retired from the Marines in 1977, he’d been awarded three Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star.
But as a child, Maj. Dunagan had a brief career as a child actor in films like Son of Frankenstein and The Tower of London, which ended after his most famous role as the voice and physical model for the lead character in Walt Disney’s 1944 classic Bambi.
Yeah. Bambi was in the shit. Smoke an ounce to that.
