CHARLES DURNING VETERAN OF DDAY...SILVER STAR AND 3 PURPLE

HEARTS Charles Durning was an actor who started in "Tootsie"

and "O Brother Where Art Thou", and "The Best Little $$$$$ House in

Texas"(his Oscar Nomination). He also starred as the priest on

"Everybody Loves Raymond". However, Durning was not the 2nd

highest decorated soldier in WW2. He did land on Omaha beach and on

15 June was wounded in several places by an S-Mine. He recovered

and was present at the Battle of the Bulge. Audie Murphy, of

3rd Infantry Division. However, I don't know of any TV shows he

acted in. He was in many movies and especially Westerns.
