“You've got to recognize, there will never be another you. It has nothing to do with ego; it happens to be the truth. There will never be another person the same. There'll never be another you. There'll never be another me . . . And there'll never be another show like this!” - Mickey Rooney
 
These days, Mickey Rooney is best known for his cameo appearances as an elderly man in "Night at the Museum" and 2011's, "The Muppets" but there was a time when the multi-talented Rooney was adored for his spirit and personification of youth among the masses.  At 18 months old, Mickey Rooney toddled out on stage for the first time to appear alongside his popular Vaudeville Circuit parents.  His career only blossomed from there. By the age of 18, Mickey Rooney was the #1 box office star in America!
 
Mickey Rooney deserves recognition for a lot more than his acting career which is extensive.  During WWII, Rooney earned the Bronze Star for entertaining troops in dangerous combat zones for nearly 2 years, serving for a total of 21 months.
 
Mickey Rooney passed away yesterday at the age of 93.
 
So long, Mickey Rooney... Thank You for 90 years of brilliant performances that brought great joy to the country, and thank you for your time spent supporting American troops through such a pivotal moment in history.

An interesting read from Stars and Stripes about how Hollywood gets it wrong and what the rules are for wearing Military uniforms on set.

For the better part of history, women have been known for having a more traditional role in U.S. Military service from Betsy Ross stitching the first American Flag to Clara Barton founding the American Red Cross.  Most people even believe that until recently, women have not fought on the front lines during any American War.  This assumption is wrong.

Margaret Corbin cooked, cleaned, and fired cannons while she fought alongside her husband and his division during the Revolutionary War and was the first woman to receive a pension.

Elizabeth Newcume was a modern day Joan of Arc who disguised herself as a man during the Mexican War, marching 600 miles to fight in Dodge City before being discovered and discharged from Military service.

It is estimated that 400 women pulled a "Joan of Arc" trick of their own during the Civil War and fought alongside Union Army men while dressed in disguise.

Until WWI and required physical exams, women bravely fought in every American War and in 2013, the ban against women fighting on the front lines was finally lifted.

A note that USA Cares recently received! The letter reads...

" Thank you USA Cares for helping my family keep food on our table while I have been unable to support them. You have made it much easier for me to be away from them without the worry of them suffering. Thank you again."
