Most people these days remember him from the old "Green Acres" TV show but he was in alot of shows and movies. Always seemed like a very nice man to me.

Yes, this is really sad. I never knew about his wartime service, but in common with a lot of people form his generation, he either didn't want to boast about it or wanted to leave that in the past and move on.
