Ice-T

Time flies when you're at war. It's the tenth anniversary of the war in Iraq and despite how many may feel about the mission, most can agree to support the troops. We're taking this opportunity to recognize a few celebrities who have served the country.

Ice-T enlisted in the army at age 17 as a way to earn enough money to support his girlfriend and their child. He spent most of his four years of duty stationed in Honolulu and much of his off-duty time learning the turntables and practicing his flow. He was honorably discharged at age 21, after which he embarked on a life of crime before gaining fame as a rapper and actor.
