"This probably isn't a forgotten history for the Trekkies but even though I am a Star Trek Fan I did not know about the heroics of James Doohan(Scotty) during World War 2…"

First time I have heard of it…

I've known this for a long time.

Quite well known, at least amongst Canadian trekkies. Still a good story though.

His character "Scotty" was a positive role model to many youngsters growing up in the 1960s. Unlike many "stars" popular today.

Yes I met him at a convention in the southern USA many years ago. He would talk about the loss. It was an enjoyable conversation.
