Clint Eastwood - A Star Who Served

Before Clint Eastwood became the toughest man in the west, he was drafted into the Army during the Korean war.  He completed basic training at Ft. Ord outside of Monterey, California.  After basic training he remained stationed at Ft. Ord as a swimming instructor and completed his enlistment there.Clint800-400.jpg

While having not seen combat directly, Clint fought for his life when a plane he was on ran out of fuel and crash landed into the water outside of San Francisco.  He swam 3 miles to shore through the cold, choppy water proving that he is the ultimate tough guy.  He was discharged in 1953 and used the GI Bill to study drama at L.A. City College.  The rest is history.

Clint was so captured by the beauty of the Monterey Bay area during his time in the military that he made it his permanent residence, even serving as mayor of Carmel from 1986 -1988.
