On this Veterans Day, I want to take the time to honor a man who was the most decorated of all WWII soldiers, Audie Murphy. A short, slight man, Audie grew up in poverty, and at age 10, became ‘man of the house’ when his father passed away. Audie, to support the family by putting food on the table, became a crack shot with a rifle. In military service, this skill, along with his bravery and daring, would combine to produce a feared combatant, and would save the lives of hundreds of his fellow soldiers. Watch this short film [captioned] about Audie Murphy.
Audie Leon Murphy (June 20, 1924–May 28, 1971) was an American soldier in World War II. In 27 months of combat action, he became the most decorated U.S. combat soldier of World War II.
Murphy received the Medal of Honor, the military’s highest award for valor, along with 32 additional medals awarded for bravery and service.
He died in an airplane crash in May 1971.
