(Lee Marvin said,) "at Iwo, I served under  the bravest man I ever knew... what he did for his Navy Cross made mine look cheap. He stood on Red beach and directed his  troops to move forward off the beach..  Bullets flying by, with mortar rounds landing everywhere and he  stood there as the main target of gunfire so that he could get his  men to safety. more than once because his men's safety was more important than his own life." The Sergeant's name: Bob Keeshan - Captain Kangaroo.
