Father Ed's 'Sports' Heroes
Just some of the many athletes who served their country by serving in the military

Patty Berg
After winning 29 amateur golf titles, Patty Berg opted to turn professional in 1940. Just two years later, she took time away from the game to serve as a lieutenant in the Marines during World War II

Ty Cobb
Ty Cobb excelled in a lengthy career in which he set 90 MLB records, won 12 total batting titles, stole home 54 times and compiled such impressive statistics that he was inducted into the inaugural class of the Baseball Hall of Fame. His career was interrupted, however, by World War I. In October of 1918, Cobb enlisted in the Army's Chemical Corps and was sent over to France. He served just 70 days before receiving an honorable discharge following an accidental exposure to mustard gas.

Dwight F. Davis
A talented tennis player, Dwight F. Davis won three U.S. men's doubles titles at the U.S. Championships and was the intercollegiate singles champion in 1899. In 1900, he created an international tennis competition (later renamed the Davis Cup in his honor) to pit national teams against each other. With Davis as a teammate, the U.S. won the Cup the first two years the tournament was played. Davis went on to serve in the U.S. Army during World War I and received the Distinguished Service Cross for his action in France in 1918. Lieutenant Colonel Davis remained involved in the military later in life, serving as the Assistant Secretary of War from 1923-1925 under President Calvin Coolidge before being elevated to the Secretary of War position from 1925-1929.

Vincent Hancock
After starting his shooting career at the age of 11, Vincent Hancock won his first World Championship title in skeet shooting in 2005. In 2008 at the age of 19, Hancock claimed the gold medal in men's skeet at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing by outlasting a competitor in a shoot-off. He is currently a Sergeant in the Army Marksmanship Unit.

Tim James
After playing in the NBA for three years with the Miami Heat, Charlotte Hornets and Philadelphia 76ers and six years playing abroad, Tim James decided to end his professional basketball career and enlist in the U.S. Army on Sept. 12, 2008 at the age of 31. He chose not to inform his fellow soldiers of his basketball background, preferring to have a fresh start. He completed a 12-month deployment to Iraq in July of 2010.

Bobby Jones
One of the greatest golfers in history, Bobby Jones competed only as an amateur. While he retired at the age of 28 with nine wins, seven of which were in majors, Jones is perhaps best known for winning all four major tournaments in 1930. Motivated by a desire to give back to the sport of golf by hosting a major tournament, Jones purchased land in Georgia and built the course that has hosted the Masters every year since 1934 but three. From 1943-1945, Jones, an officer in the U.S. Army Air Forces, instead used the grounds to support World War II efforts by raising cattle and turkeys on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club.

Joe Louis
One day after fighting a charity bout for the Navy boxer Joe Louis enlisted as a private in the Army. Assigned to a segregated cavalry unit, Louis continued to fight at charity events and was the focus of a military recruitment campaign aimed at encouraging African Americans to enlist. He also took time to help those who did join the Army, pushing for an end to the delays preventing a group of African American men from entering Officer Candidate School. One of those men was baseball legend Jackie Robinson. When released from military service in 1945, Louis was a Sergeant and had been awarded the Legion of Merit medal. In addition to holding the heavyweight boxing title from 1937 to 1949 (participating in 27 championship fights), Louis also broke golf's color barrier by competing in a PGA event in 1952.

WillieMays
One year after winning 1951 Rookie of the Year honors, Willie Mays was drafted by the U.S. Army to serve in the Korean War. After missing about 266 games, he returned to the San Francisco Giants in 1954 and put up impressive numbers, leading the league with a .345 batting average and crushing 41 home runs. Throughout his lengthy career, Mays won one World Series title, was a 20-time All Star, 12-time Gold Glove Award winner and two-time National League MVP and had eight consecutive 100-RBI seasons. In 1979 in his first year of eligibility, Mays was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

John Napier
Five years after becoming a member of the U.S. national bobsleigh team in June 2007 John Napier enlisted in the Vermont Army National Guard. Currently a soldier in the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program, Sergeant Napier won the two-man event at the 2009 U.S. National Bobsleigh Championships.

Charlie Paddock
In between two military stints, Charlie Paddock competed for the United States at the 1920, 1924 and 1928 Summer Olympics. He won gold medals in the 100-meter dash and 4x100m relay in 1920 as well as a silver medal in the 200m race, while in 1924 he picked up his second 200m silver. A lieutenant of field artillery in World War I, Paddock also won the 100m and 200m events in the 1919 Inter-Allied Games, the first major sporting event after the war ended. Re-enlisting at the start of World War II and advancing to the rank of Captain, Paddock was killed in a plane crash while in service in 1943. A military ship was later named in his honor.

Shauna Rohbock
After graduating from BYU and playing professional soccer for the San Diego Spirit, Shauna Rohbock enlisted in the Utah Army National Guard and began seriously focusing on her bobsleigh career. As a driver in the 2006 Winter Olympics, Rohbock earned silver in the two-woman event. She also has four World Championships medals: silver in two-woman in 2009, bronzes in two-woman in 2005 and 2007 and bronze in mixed team in 2009.

Ted Williams
While serving two tours as a Marine pilot, baseball legend Ted Williams lost a total of five years of his professional career. When he enlisted for the first time in 1942, he had just completed his first Triple Crown season. After excelling in training, Williams served as a flight instructor during World War II. In 1952 at the age of 34, Williams was recalled to active duty for the Korean War. He eventually flew 39 combat missions before suffering an inner ear infection that disqualified him from flight status. In his 21-year career with the Boston Red Sox, Williams twice won the Triple Crown, was an All Star 17 times, was the last player to bat over .400 in a single season and twice was the American League MVP. In 1966, he was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame. His number was also retired by the Red Sox.
