Charles Durning and Jack Klugman die

Both served in ww2 and Durning was a true hero,and really had a rough service.
He was with the first wave on D day,and was the only one that survived from his unit.He was wounded,and later bayonetted by a young German that he killed with a rock.He was taken prisoner at the Battle of the Bulge and survived a mass pow killing.He would never talk about this,and would never appear in a ww2 movie.Said too many bad memories,and there could never be a movie that realistic.3 purple hearts and a silver star.

I remember watching the Odd Couple and Quincy with my parents. Odd Couple was a hoot and Quincy was just a good 'whodunit'.

Both WW2 vets as pointed out above. Durning was a real warrior, but never blew his own horn. Just classy. Reminds me of Eddie Albert who earned a Silver Star for rescuing wounded Marines under heavy fire at Tarawa. They just put the experience in their ballcaps and went about the job of entertaining.

Two classy gentlemen who will be missed.
