I could not post a biographical video of Dale Robertson, so the picture image will have to do:
In 1942, Dale Robertson entered as a Private in the Horse Cavalry where he served until 1945. He also joined the military as a tank commander in the 777th Battalion in North Africa and he was promoted to first Lieutenant with 332ng Combat Engineers in the third Army of Patton. As an actor, he is best known for his roles in the television series entitled Dynasty & Dallas.
Robertson entered the U.S. Army during World War II. After stateside training he served as a tank commander in the 777th Tank Battalion in the North African campaign. He was standing in the hatch when his tank was hit by enemy fire. His tank crew were killed, but he was blown out of the hatch and survived with shrapnel wounds to his lower legs, the scars of which he still bears. Fully recovered, he went on to serve with the 322nd Combat Engineer Battalion during the European campaign. He was wounded a second time, this one in the right knee during a mortar attack. Again he made a complete recovery.
He was awarded the Bronze and Silver stars and a Purple Heart
