Mr. Durning was a war hero who endured horrific and untold experiences, combat injuries, capture and POW status during WWII. For many, many years he related the first-hand accounts of his many comrades-in-arms at
the PBS Memorial Day observances, and imparted to us the incalculable cost of freedom. He consistently honored those who have so honored us.

Mr. Durning belongs to that elite and small group of actors who are so accomplished and professional they make everything look easy. He could portray a character imbued with every vice or virtue and make them instantly believable to the viewer.

Like the aging Sea Captain Pete he portrayed in one of his last films, Mr. Durning has now taken his last voyage "out of our sight", but has left us with indelible memories of the many wondrous voyages on which he has taken us.

Thank you, Charles.
