Who doesn’t know the actor and comedian Rob Riggle? He appeared in popular films such as “The Hangover” and “The Other Guys.”

“The Other Guys” – ‘Desk Pop’ Scene

What may not be known is Riggle had a full career in the Marine Corps reaching the rank of LtCol.

Here is a rare interview with Riggle reflecting upon his time in the service and his journey into comedy and film.

Perhaps the best clip of Rob Riggle was in his early days when he went undercover to interview people opposed to a US Marine Corps recruiting office in Berkeley, California.

Appreciate it.

USMC Steve

He did 8 years active then went reserve, and after 9/11/2001 he went back on active duty for a couple more years.

He also served a term as President of the Navy.

People praising Vindictive-man?
In the immortal words of Bugs Bunny, “They don’ know him vewy well, do they?”

Nope, they don’t.

Not everyone in those replies is praising Vindman. I think the John C Reilly “looking bewildered” meme was my favorite response.


“Who doesn’t know the actor…” I REALLY need to get out more. Never heard of him. But now that I’ve clicked on the tube of ewe, I guess I’ll have everyone out there popo up now.

BZ, Good Sir, for not forgetting your roots.
