don't think so - we worked on his museum near victorville ca, in the 60s and got acquainted then - i remember a few things about him - his real name was len. roy & dale (he'd lost his first wife) adopted and raised a few kids, lived in a surprisingly average house north of town and kept nellybelle out in the front yard. much to dale's chagrin, roy liked to walk around in his longjohns and cowboy hat after hours. he'd play cards with that walleyed jack elam and such. he'd attend local saturday nite bbq's and they'd sing along out there and outside of being pretty religious they lived just about as normal as the rest of us. quite a couple alright. :)

Doesn't matter. He was my hero.

Born in 1911 he was probably too old for WW2.
He did a lot of USO troop entertaining and sellin those war bonds. He was a very patriotic American and a good Christian, too.

I found a web page that has some history on him. I don't see any thing about him serving in the military. However it says he did make many USO tours. Here is the site:

Hope this helps.
