    He was an established actor before WW2,then went on to serve as an Army Air Corps pilot in the European theater, receiving two Distinguished Flying Crosses. He stayed in the Air Force reserves and achieved the rank of Brigadier General. During the Vietnam War he quietly, with NO fanfare, flew in the instructor pilot position on a B-52 that went on a bombing run over Vietnam and almost didn't make it back because of an inflight emergency.. He insisted that the public never knew about it and didn't let the studios use it for publicity, Few know about it today.
    He was a helluva guy.
    How many people in his position at the time (major Hollywood star and a General in the US military) would stick their neck out like that and demand that news of it never be released?

    What I wonder is why Beavis is so often invoked, but nobody ever calls anyone Butthead?

    I bet your hero is Jacob Walker.

    Possibly the last Texian to die in battle was Jacob Walker, who attempted to hide behind Susannah Dickinson and was bayoneted in front of the women.

    Calling someone a Beavis identifies the Butthead.

    Maybe he saw this and was afraid of it happening to him:

    How To Troll a Texan

    Remind them Texas was founded as a puppet state by illegal alien invaders...

    Tell them that Alaska is bigger and California has more people, forcing them to accept that they will always be second best.

    Ask them who won the battle at the Alamo.

    Remind them how their [crappy] baseball team got their ass kicked in the World Series by a bunch of pot smoking hippies from San Francisco.

    Tell them you support any rights for women.

    It'd be just like you to belittle his contribution.
    He was a B-17 pilot in the European theater, one in three B-17 crewmen didn't come home.
    You suck.

    How many people did Jimmy Stewart stop from coming home?
