Retired Marine Corps Major Donnie Dunagan served 25 years, including two tours in Vietnam. But during his entire military career there was one thing he didn’t want his comrades to discover — as a child he had been the voice of Bambi in the 1942 Disney film.

In this podcast we learn more about Dunagan’s experience making Bambi and how StoryCorps producer Jasmyn Belcher Morris found his story.
