"The Singing Cowboy" was one country artist who actually joined the military after he became famous. Autry was already a country music sensation and major movie star when he decided to enlist in the United States Army during World War II in 1942.

During his service, Autry became a tech sergeant in the United States Army Air Corps. He also had a private pilot's license, and worked toward becoming a military pilot. He ended up serving as a C-109 transport pilot and flew during a dangerous operation over the Himalayas.

After he returned from the Army, Autry continued to dazzle audiences both on stage and on the screen, making him one of the most beloved cowboys of all time.
