Jimmy Stewart was hardcore. He was rejected from the WWII draft for being too skinny

Jimmy Stewart was hardcore. He was rejected from the WWII draft for being too skinny, and kept applying until he had bulked enough. The army tried to give him the celebrity treatment, have him make training films and sell bonds. He fought against it and instead became a fighter pilot and later a bomber pilot, flying over 20 missions in Nazi occupied Europe. He retired a Brigadier General of the USAF. Also, he won an Oscar and starred in countless classics.
Oh and something else...he was married to one woman for 45 years, until her death in 1994. Jimmy died 3 years later...they had 4 children. That was almost a record for most Hollywood types. Jimmy was not a typical Hollywood type.
