Harvey Keitel (born May 13, 1939) is an American actor. Like Gene Hackman, he left home at age 16 to join the Marines, ending up in Lebanon with Operation Blue Bat in 1958. In this 2003 interview, he said, "For me the Marine Corps was a spiritual journey. It's not about war. Our duty is to protect those who do not have the means to protect themselves."

Actor/comedian/game show host Drew Carey served 6 years in the United States Marine Corps Reserve. When Time Magazine asked him what events in life made him who he is, Carey replied "the Marine Corps. It instilled a great sense of discipline that I can call on when I need to." Obviously he enjoyed being a jarhead because he has kept his Marine crew cut through most of his stage and TV career.
