Nelson Eddy, United States Intelligence, who was fluent in German and did top secret espionage work during the war, under the guise of giving an overseas concert tour. His cover was blown and he was injured in Cairo.

Thanks to them all for their service! Sure wish modern Hollywood would take a leaf out of that generation’s book.
