Salute to Our Veterans

Posted by Peter Monticup on 11/12/2012 to Monticup Speaks

First off, we'd like to sincerely thank all military veterans for their unselfish service and patriotic spirit. Their efforts have made our freedoms possible for all of us. We are proud of all of them! 


Did you know that many magicians have served with distinction in the military, both in the US Armed Forces and in other countries around the world? For example, Harry Blackstone Jr. was part of the US Army Security Agency from 1952 until 1955. Other magicians like Lee Grabel and were assigned to the Military Special Services, touring and providing entertainment to the troops during World War II. 

Even some magicians among the troops gained some notoriety: at the close of WWII, after helping liberate the prisoners at Dachau, Dick Marowitz was one of the troops assigned to search Hitler's Munich apartment. There he discovered Hitler's black top hat, which he still owns. A strange connection, since a top hat is so closely associated with magic. 

Speaking of WWII, the most famous magician to be associated with the war is Jasper Maskelyne. This British magician is credited with helping win the war by designing some incredibly realistic illusions.
