Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister… Comedian Eddie Murphy did a popular parody of Rogers for the TV show Saturday Night Live… There is no truth to the rumor that Mr. Rogers was once an Army sniper, a Marine or a Navy SEAL. (Similar untrue stories are told about John Denver and TV’s Captain Kangaroo.) He did not serve in the military in any capacity.
