How many major actors who served in WW2 are actually alive now after the death of Kirk Douglas? For Germany it would be easy with Hardy Krüger Sr. (who is also international quiet famous) but the only famous living american actor I could think of who served in WW2 is Dick van Dyke, but he did only stateside service.

 

After about 10 seconds of thinking Mel Brooks, Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte came also into my mind.

Fellow deathlister Carl Reiner tweeted this tribute.

 

He tweets a hell of a lot for a 97 year old

There does exist a helpful reference in the Wiki page of notable surviving World War II veterans.

Wow I just found out that he died, I saw him on Movies123 and I can't believe it, if my grandmother finds out she is going to have a heart attack

Out of interest, is your granny Betty White? :D
