Tony Curtis, A Fine Actor and A Proud U.S. Navy World War II Veteran

Tony Curtis died Wednesday. He was 85.

Much as been written about his fine performances in The Sweet Smell of Success, Some Like it Hot, Operation Petticoat and other great films, but there was little coverage of his military service.

In addition to being a fine actor, Tony Curtis was also a proud U.S. Navy World War II veteran.

The Navy Times wrote a good piece about Curtis' wartime Navy service and how he was forever grateful to the Navy.

You can read the Navy Times via the below link:
