Charles Durning’s best role was World War II hero

Charles Durning has passed away and had a 50-year career playing many different roles. And yet I feel the most important role he had in life was serving our country during WWII. 

He fought on D-Day and was taken prisoner in the Battle of the Bulge and almost lost his life. He was awarded the Silver Star and three purple Hearts. A true to life role and that in my view a true veteran and a most valuable American. For it is Americans like Charles Durning who during WWII that helped America and most of the world stay free for democracy. 

Charles Durning thanks for your service to America, for you will not be forgotten.
