Short Bio: In 1942, Buchwald ran away to join the U.S. Marine Corps at the age of 17 and served in World War II. Buchwald, who came to love the armed forces, served in the Pacific theater until 1945. He was discharged in Los Angeles with the rank of Sergeant. With a New York State veteran’s bonus of $250 in hand, he followed an urge to sample the expatriate life and bought a one-way ticket to Paris to study French on the GI Bill.
