We lost another one yesterday Actor and overall nice guy Jack Klugman passed away. He used to come visit at the USO at LAX when I was stationed there just before the first Gulf War.

    Both Klugman and Durning had great careers and fine lives, no regrets I'm sure. I liked Klugman more in Quincy than in Odd Couple but both were good. My fave Durning performance was his playing the shady Irish politician in "True Confessions", his doing that Irish dance at his daughter's wedding and then going ballistic when he's accused of murder.

    Two fine guys, both led terrific lives.

    RIP to both Mr. Klugman and Mr Durning. :angel2: Both very fine actors.

    Both were WWII vets. Both will be missing

    Durning was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of prisoners.

    In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.
