The charter Lieutenant Phil Hartman played by George Segal is the fictional version of the real man who commanded the squad that took the actual bridge on that day. That man was 1st Lieutenant Karl Timmermann; he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism. Timmermann served in Korea in combat but after complaining of abdominal pain, he was sent to the The Fitzsimons Army Medical Center in Denver, Colorado. Timmermann was diagnosed with testicular cancer and died 21 October 1951. He was such a good soldier he polished all the brass on the uniform he wanted to be buried in; and made sure all his ribbons were properly displayed on his uniform just before he died. See more
