I always like Audie Murphy and his story. what a great person and a good movie actor too. Wasn't the movie they made about him called 'To Hell and Back' War story? MB

Did you know Audie Murphy was a very good songwriter. I knew a producer in Nashville who co-wrote "Shutters and Boards" ...

Is "the most decorated" still hold true for him? Was not aware that he was a Texan. As an adolescent I thought he was groovy.

When I saw this on the portal, I thought it was connected somehow with the NFL game today. (grin) I imagine the Cowboys will be under-impressed when they see our Dome in the 'hood when compared with their Texas facilities. Since I'm a Packer fan, may the best team win (although my family doesn't feel the same way. I hope that it will not be a boring, one-sided game.

Great hero. Always enjoyed watching hte movie about his life. We tried to find this years ago when we drove through Texas but didn't know exactly what town it was in. It's in East Texas, right?

«Louis» is a World War II history buff. He gives you a tip o' the hat for posting this. Murphy was a genuine hero.
