A very sad day today with Scotty (James Doohan) passing on.
Born March 3, 1920, Doohan did so much more than just being Scotty.
He served in the Canadian army and was part of the d-day invasion in WorldWar2. Landing on Juno beach he took 6 bullets in the conflict, 4 in his leg, one took off a finger and one in the chest. The chest bullet was stopped by his silver cigarette case.
Almost as impressive is him fathering a child at age 80.
I did not know any of this until today, like many star trek fans he was just Scotty.
The engineer with the “can do” attitude.
Scotty will surely live on for many years to come.
“I’m giving her all she’s got, Captain!” Yes, Scotty you certainly did.
