17 Fictional Fighters: TV Characters Who Have Served Their Country

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Happy Memorial Day, THGers.

In honor of this special holiday, we previously posted a gallery of 19 Celebrities Who Served in the Military - and we salute those real-life men and women.

But television sometimes salutes members of the armed forces in its own way, as a number of characters across the TV dial are former Navy SEALS, army snipers and/or ex-helicopter pilots.

A few are also vampires. 

From True Blood to The Vampire Diaries, NCIS to The Simpsons, we honor these fictional fighters in the following slideshow. Thank you for your pretend service, people... 

Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries)
Damon Salvatore sure knows how to wear a uniform, doesn't he? The character served his country in multiple wars. We thank him for his service.
