John Banner aka "Sergeant Schultz" query

Postby PF » 20 Dec 2007 17:21

Once saw a newspaper clipping of actor John Banner aka "Sergeant Schultz" which claimed during World War II he was a model for a recruiting poster for either US Army Air Forces or US Army Paratroopers.
Did he served in US Armed Services during World War II?

Here is a picture of young John Banner from a HH fan site.
As you can see, the caption says it is from a military poster photo shoot.
