Good morning & Happy Sunday! This day in Disney history, Aug. 26th, 1918. A 16 year old Walt Disney enlists in the American Ambulance Corps (part of the Red Cross). The recruiter @ the Red Cross was skeptical since Walt needed to be 17 & asked to see Walt's birth certificate. Walt attempted to get it & was shocked to discover that Cook County had no record that he was born in Chicago on December 5th, 1901, as he'd been led to believe. Undeterred, he came up w/ a different plan. Walts mother Flora forges her husbands signature on the passport application & Walt changes the date of his birth to December 5, 1900. His application was accepted. He spent a year driving an ambulance & chauffeuring Red Cross officials. His ambulance was covered not just w/stock camouflage, but w/ Disney cartoons.
