Walt Disney was a very patriotic American throughout his life. He lived the American dream through faith, hard work, perseverance and an abundance of creativity. The quote in the picture below is one of my favorites referring to his thoughts on American freedom.
- Walt Disney drew patriotic cartoons for his school newspaper focusing on World War I.
- He tried to join the Army at age 16 but was rejected due to his young age.
- He drove an ambulance in France after World War 1.
- The Walt Disney Company produced 68 propaganda, training and documentary films for the US war effort during World War II.
