    He was the most decorated US soldier of WWII and then later became an actor. He had some personal problems but was undoubtedly a very brave man. He repeatedly refused a commission until all his buddies had been killed. There is a movie of his wartime exploits to hell and back based on a book.

    Audie Murphy had a difficult time entering the military as he was of slight build and appeared too weak to serve in the military. He persisted and finally was accepted by the U S Army. He died in a private plane crash in 1971. He is buried at Arlington National Cemetary.

    One of mine as well.


    He had the ability of staying cool in the heat of battle
    and could assess otherwise confusing combat
    situations. Interestingly, he played himself
    in the film "To Hell And Back".........
