Mr. Rogers was a U.S. Navy Seal, combat-proven in Vietnam with over twenty-five confirmed kills to his name. He wore a long-sleeved sweater on TV, to cover the many tattoos on his forearm and biceps. He was a master in small arms and hand-to-hand combat, able to disarm or kill in a heartbeat. After the war Mr. Rogers became an ordained Presbyterian minister, vowing to never harm another human and dedicating the rest of his life to trying to help lead children on the right path in life.
According to this legend Mr. Rogers, the popular children’s show host, was once a Navy SEAL sniper in Vietnam responsible for numerous deaths. It goes on to say that the only reason he always wears a sweater is to cover up all of his tattoos. As you may have guessed, Mr. Rogers was never a Navy SEAL and he had no tattoos, in fact he was never even in the military. This isn’t the first time, however, that this rumor has circulated concerning a clean cut celebrity.
Fred Rogers was a saint. A beautiful and kind man. He NEVER gave the camera the finger...like in the b&w photo that's been circulating. It's a photoshop, and a cruel one at that. Here's snopes about it. http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/mrrogers.asp
