1 Bea Arthur on Mon Mar 24, 2014 11:47 pm


In honor of Women's History Month, we have a special Tribute this morning honoring the life and military service of actress Bea Arthur. Before The Golden Girls and before Maude, Arthur had enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1943. She served 30 months as a typist and truck driver, and achieved the rank of Staff Sergeant. Arthur was discharged in 1945 and began what would become a legendary acting career two years later. She died in 2009 at the age of 86. While no one knows why she denied her service, records indicate she was a good worker and, at just 21, was "willing to get in now and do whatever is desired of me." Thank you for your service, Bea, and cheers! -Jason Davis
