During the fall of 1918, Walt Disney attempted to en-list for military service. Rejected because he was under age, only sixteen at the time. Instead, Walt Disney joined the Red Cross and was sent overseas to France, where he spent a year driving an ambulance and chauffeuring Red Cross officials. His ambulance was covered from stem to stern, not with stock camouflage, but with Disney cartoons.
Walt Disney Quote: I do not like to repeat successes, I like to go on to other things.
