Paul Newman - The Charitable Patriot

During his studies at Yale University in 1943, Paul Newman enrolled in the United States Navy V-12 pilot training program.  Due to his colorblindness he was dropped from the program and transferred into regular bootcamp.  Paul trained as an aviation radioman and rear gunner.

After basic training Paul was assigned to the Pacific based torpedo squadrons.  His responsibilities included training replacement combat pilots and crewmen.  Later in the war, Paul served as a turret gunner aboard an Avenger torpedo bomber.  He also spent time aboard the USS Bunker Hill in 1945 shortly before the battle of Okinawa.

Paul was discharged from the Navy in 1946.  He used the GI Bill to complete his Bachelors degree in Drama and Economics at Kenyon College in Ohio.  He then studied at the Actor’s Studio in New York.

Paul would go on to become one of the most decorated and respected actors of his generation.  He won the Best Actor Oscar for The Color of Money.  In addition to acting, Paul was also a successful and charitable businessman.  He founded a food company, Newman’s Own, and donated all of the profits and royalties to charity which as of 2014 amounted to over $400 million.
