Watched Sands of Iwo Jima last night and something came to mind......

What is it with Horrywood's fascination with Sargent characters with names beginning with the letter S?

Sargent Stryker

Sargent Steiner

Sargent Saunders


How many more can you come up with?

Sargent Shriver joined the Navy in 1941, before Pearl Harbor. He was a gunnery officer on USS South Dakota at the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands and the 2nd Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, where he was wounded. Afterwards, he trained for submarines and served as gunnery and torpedo officer on USS Sand Lance.

Thanks. I didn't know that. Compares favourably with Messrs Bush, Jr. and Romney. Must have been a nightmare
being a Sargent in the Navy.

Maria Shriver's father and former father in law to Arnold Schwarzenegger. Sargent Shriver also married into the Kennedy family.

Being from a land where we issue proper First Names, I assume he isn't a Senior NCO.

Interesting how history changes in the popular mind. I would have said he started the Peace Corps and was the nominee for Vice-President of the United States in 1972.

I remember hearing about those accomplishments when people were eulogizing him, but I didn't remember them until you mentioned them here. I was around in 1972, but I think I was more concerned about Christmas than the presidential election. My first awareness of political was when Nixon resigned, which was still ahead of most of my classmates, most of whom didn't know the capital of California (and they lived there).

I have a vivid memory of watching the 1972 election results on a portable B&W TV in our kitchen with my dad, who was a solid Nixon man. That was a dirty election of course. Look up the reason Shriver was even on the final ticket as well as Watergate's inception. That Nixon went from that historic sweep to resignation in two years says something about the man.

I was working my first job bussing tables at Virginia Beach when he resigned. On a portable radio somebody walked by with as I sat on a bench on the boardwalk after work. Watergate was the defining event of my young political life. I voted in the 1976 election. I had been 18 for three weeks.

You're pretty much a contemporary of my sister who was 10 years older than me. She said when she took general ed political science in college all the professor talked about was Watergate and she was sick of the topic even before the class started. My parents were for Nixon too.

The presidential elections from 1964 to 1972 were all unusual in one way or another. I know quite a bit about that era, but it's pretty much history to me rather than living memory. I have vague memories of the first moon landing, and better memories of the later ones, I remember the 1971 Sylmar earthquake extremely well, I have some memories of the 1972 Winter Olympics, and Vietnam on the TV news was a constant backdrop throughout my early years. Politics was mostly vague until about 1974.

Nah, just makes it an odd middle name.

Ughfortunately for this thread, Wardaddy's last name is Collier. But the movie should get props for the 'Sgt. Fury' reference.

Not to make light of a dedicated public servant and in my eyes one of the great men of the 1960s and 70s. Shriver helped create and was the first head of the Peace Corps under the Kennedy administration and helped found such famous social programs as VISTA, Head Start and the Job Corps. After an unsuccessful bid for the presidential nomination in 1976 he retired from public life but remained a very influential attorney in Washington DC for the rest of his career.

An interesting note is that he was one of the founders of the American First Committee to keep the US out of the war in Europe (Gerald Ford was a co-founder along with Justice Potter Stewart). However, Shriver enlisted in the Navy before Pearl Harbor and served with distinction. I always thought he had a cool name...

Just speculating, but since Sargent was really his middle name, it may be an old family name that was passed down over the generations. I notice Sargent Shriver's father's name was Robert Sargent Shriver Sr.

My mother's Father's family had a similar tradition of giving the first born son each generation the middle name Morgan. It links back to the late 1700s when an ancestor married a daughter of the Morgan clan (which was a very prominent New England family at the time there are a lot of famous people who came from that family including JP Morgan, my relation to the clan at this point is very distant since this was my 6X grand mother).

Yeah, I actually looked him up and looked at his history and posted a quote accredited to him.

I've seen a lot of people with Kennedy as a middle name, perpetuating their link back to the Kennedy family.
