Morgan Freeman

Long before he played an officer in the Oscar-nominated film Glory, Freeman served in the Air Force, where he worked as a radar technician. Though his time in active duty was relatively brief, it instilled in Freeman a lifelong love of flying. The actor finally got a pilot's license at the age of 65.
