We must always remember our hero’s.

Audie Murphy turned would have turned 89 today (June 20th) earned and received every decoration for valor that this country had to offer plus 5 decorations presented to him by France and Belgium.

The 19-year-old Murphy received the Medal of Honor after single-highhandedly holding off an entire company of Germans for an hour at the Colmar Pocket in France in January 1945.  He then lead a successful counterattack while wounded and out of ammunition.

God Bless all who serve America and fight for freedom.
