The real story is that sixteen-year-old Walt Disney wanted to enlist in the U.S. Army during World War I, but was too young. So he lied about his age and enlisted in the American Ambulance Corps of the Red Cross. Young Walt arrived in France in November 1918, just shy of his 17th birthday. On October 9, 1919, after eleven months of overseas service, Walt returned to the United States. His official discharge from the Ambulance Corps was the next day. And there was nothing dishonorable about it.
