This is a TRUE STORY:
It's a little-know fact that Rock Hudson fought at Iwo Jima and was one of the guys in that famous photo of the Marines raising that flag on top of Mount Errobutt.
As well, that's where Rock first met Jim Nabors,
who was an instructor in hand-to-hand combat. Very few marines could go up against Nabors, and they quickly gave up once he growled "Now- your ass is MINE, sweetheart!"
They were known (privately) amongst themselves as the "Gay
Battalion" and soon became notorious amongst the Japanese soldiers, who
quickly decided they would rather fight to the death rather than be captured by
these marines! It was only much later that the US High Command found out this
true reason why the Japs fought to the death.
Hudson and Nabors were both awarded Red Hearts for their minor wounds received while in hand-to-hand combat with the terrified Japs. (Nabors apparently broke several fingernails)
"RED" Heart, you may ask?
"Mister" Rogers and his phony flak jacket! Notice something? See his right arm? - in some sort of peculiar "salute"? hmmnn...
Rock Hudson and Capt. Nabors were instrumental in getting Liberace to come to Iwo Jima, and later Okinawa, to entertain the exhausted marines with his deft keyboard style.
"LEE - THE COOK SOCKER."
Liberace liked playing for the troops so much that he stayed for several months and got a job as cook in the Officer's mess, after punching out the original cook.
The officers thereafter fondly referred to him as "The Cook Socker" ...
Noble lads all!
; PARTICULARLY A MARINE!
