Many people may have forgotten about his time in the U.S.Army. He is the son

of an Air Force General, a accomplished Golden Gloves boxer, and he

graduated from Pomona College with a B.S. degree, then became a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford University.

He joined the U.S. Army at the prompting of his father, and after graduating

from Officer Candidate School he attended and graduated from both Army

Airborne and Ranger training.

He was in the very top of each class. He was selected

for U. S. Army Special Forces Training but refused so that he could attend

pilot training where he earned his wings and became an accomplished U.S.

Army helicopter (gun ship) pilot He achieved the rank of Captain.

He was about to be promoted to the rank of Major and appointed to teach

at West Point when he resigned his commission from the Army to go into music and acting.

You can tell in this video that his time in the military means a lot to him.
