My Weekly Spock-11/12/12 Veteran’s Day Edition–Nimoy in Uniform

Happy Veteran’s Day (Observed).  If you haven’t already, be sure to thank the Veterans in your life today, and always keep them in your thoughts and prayers–especially the physically and emotionally wounded.

From a tiny Army role in a Steve Canyon serial, to another tiny part as an Air Force Sergeant in Them! (1954), to a bigger role in The Balcony (hubba,hubba!)
to another small Army role in The Twilight Zone, In the Army again on Combat!, to a Navy Captain in Assault On the Wayne (1971). Of course, in his most famous uniform (regular and dress) which he wore so well… And Finally –Every man must do his duty, even if it is with a mop — In his actual Army uniform during the 1950’s — A sincere Thank You for your service, Sir
