It is pretty well known that Rogers was in the Korean War with the Marines, but this is something that trips me up. I’ve searched everywhere and I cannot find anything to confirm nor deny the following allegations. I’ve looked on all the Urban Legends sites as well and I’ve come up with nothing!
So, here it is.
Supposedly Mr. Rogers was a very good sniper back in his hayday during the Korean war. Nothing out of the ordinary, but I have also heard that he got a tatto on one or both of his arms for each confirmed kill. The tattoo theory would explain why Mr. Roger’s is never ever seen with a short-sleeved shirt.
So, my question to the Teeming Millions is,
Was Mr. Rogers a sniper during the war and if so, did he get a tattoo for each confirmed kill?
Also, I would like to see if anyone can come up with a picture of Mr. Rogers in a short-sleeved anything.
