This Spotlight Sunday is another guess who! Can you guess before I've finished giving the clues?
This person , at age 16, dropped out of school to join the Army, but was rejected, for being too young. He then joined the Red Cross as an ambulance driver and was sent to France, after lying and saying he was 17. (Kind of makes me think of Young Indiana Jones under age and joining the Belgium Army!) He drove the ambulance for a year, before he moved back to the United States with the desire to make a career as a newpaperman.
Can you guess? Yup! It's Walt Disney, himself!
A bit of a rascal running off like that, but as patriotic as they come, even at such a young age, wanting to do his part for his country.
