Many people would be unhappy if American actor Clint Eastwood had never served in the military. Clint is the ultimate men’s man—the epitome of gruff toughness and machismo. He served in the US Army during the Korean War after being drafted straight out of high school, but that probably didn’t come as a shock to you folks.
