  1. One of the more interesting stories I ever heard of Jimmy Stewart is also one I’ve never tried to verify (so it might just be, a story).
    Anyway, as some of you might be aware, he with a General in the United Stated Air Force, a pilot, and had flown combat missions. He’d gone to Vietnam on a good will trip to visit Air Force pilots and crew members serving in the area. They ended up terminating his visit because he was going out with them on strike missions (not as an observer, but as a pilot) in F-105s into North Vietnam.
    People who knew him said that what you saw on screen was pretty much what you got in real life. A strong, nice, moral man.
