For those of us Vets not in the military anymore, can we bring our DD214s?

Don’t forget honorary HOFer, Pete Rose!🙂

There is no record of Johnny Bench ever having served in the military. He was drafted into pro ball at 18 (1965).

Howard, Johnny was in the Army Reserves.

I was just curious. There is no mention of it in any of his Bios’. No disrespect intended, Johnny. And thank you for the info, Jamie.
