Icon09 Supv. Herner offers apology for e-mail hoax

Supv. Dianne Herner sent out more than 40 letters apologizing for perpetuating a fictitious tale about celebrities who fought in famous American battles.

At the beginning of a County Board meeting, Herner commemorated Memorial Day by reciting a story about unsung heroes she had received in an e-mail.

The legend claimed actor Lee Marvin and television personalities Bob Keeshan and Fred Rogers better known as Captain Kangaroo and Mister Rogers fought bravely at Iwo Jima, one of World War II's most storied battles, and in Vietnam, respectively.
