I have been a fan of Audie Murphy since my father took me to see his western movies as teenager. In later years, I learned of Audie's heroic time in the army. I can not tell you how many times I have seen TO HELL AND BACK! And again, just recently. It stirred up my interest again. I want to tell everyone what a wonderful soldier he was. I was trying to find out information about his early life before the Army and how he later got into movies. It is my understanding that he was jusst a teenager, possibly l6 when he joined the service. Then left at 19. I hope this site will fill in some blanks for me. I do not know much about his life after the movies, married, children and what he was doing before he was killed in the airplane crash. I just feel that there is not enough people that know what a hero he was. Thanks for this site. I shall check it out throughly.

I have always been fascinated by the story of Audie Murphy and his military career. Being an Army brat it was only natural for me to hear his story. I just wish the children of today had a hero they could look up to. Sadly this is missing in our country today. We need to hear about the exploits of the men and women who keep this country safe. It has always been an American tradition to have people who seem to rise above being human to almost super human qualities during our times of strife and war. Such a man was Audie Murphy. Decorated soldier, movie star, song writer, and author. What else would this superman have managed to do if he had not been taken from us so soon? I just hope "Little Texas" lives on in our minds, memories, and hearts.

I first became aware of Audie from the Saturday morning movies of the 50's and 60's. I thought he was great and used to tell my parents about the film when I returned home. It was my father who mentioned that he was a WW11 hero but it was not for many more years before I found out what a hero. I am very glad to have found this sight in order to keep in touch with this great man. I am English and will never forget him. America has a lot to be grateful for and I hope the new generations find this sight and learn just what a National Treasure they have. All best wishes to the sight.

It is funny how things work out. My wife and myself were watching "To Hell and Back" this past saturday and i was explaining the Audie Murphy was really the character that he was playing. Little did i know that he died on the day we were discussing him. The following Tuesday when I returned to work. My fellow employee and myself (he is a 22 year veteran of the army) got into a discusion about Audie Murphie, I was glad to see that I was the expert on him. Until the date and cause of death came up. I knew that he had died in a plane crash. I did not know, when. I have always been a fan of Audie Murphy. I am ashamed to admit that i did not know the day of death of a hero of mine that served so honorably in the name of his country. I still to this day, or as late as last saturday. Get chill bumps every time I watch his life story in the movie. I wonder though. To this day. Whatever happened to his siblings. Or why his dad never came back.

There are certain people that you would always have liked to met and tell them how much you appreciated their service to our country. Audie Murphy is one of those people for me. As a Texan myself, born into a poor family, I am extra proud that my fellow Texan, Audie Murphy, became the most decorated hero of WWII. I have always appreciated the movie roles that Audie played: clean morally, clean verbally, and clean of the filth we get today. He never compromised himself in his movie roles. He was always of special character that a young person could look up to to emulate. May Americans always remembner him and our other true heores. It is because of men and women like Audie Murphy that we can have the freedoms we still experience. Though we are losing many of those freedoms they fought for, we can still be thankful that we still have more than most people of the world. Again, may America always remember Audie. I will.

Audie Murphy was one of our people who was truly heroic in a time when "heroism" meant actually risking your life and welfare for your comrades,and for a cause greater than yourself, and not blathering on about some vacuous,self-absorbed and meaningless cause. He was one of many who put themselves in harms way, as do the heroes of this day. I saw "To Hell And Back" as a child, and enjoyed it innocently as child will. It is only now years later I realize that this man was THE MOST decorated US soldier, and I am in awe of his valor as I learn of what he actually did. Truly he, and those like him today have fought for freedom without hesitation.May God keep him and bless him.

I was a young Lt stationed at FT Lewis Washington in the 4th Division, 39th Infantry and later the 4th Medical Bn in the early to mid 1960's prior to the 4th Division's deployment to Viet-Nam. There were two pictures hung in many places at Ft Lewis. One was of Major Eisenhower, who had been stationed at Ft Lewis in the late 30's. The second was of Audie Murphy, whose movie " To Hell and Back" was made at Ft Lewis. Our First Sergeant always spoke of being filmed in the parade honoring Audie Murphy when he (the Top) was previously stationed at Ft Lewis in the mid-fifties. I just watched the movie again on Memorial Day, May 2006 and saw much of the terain I remembered from Ft Lewis. I was especially interested in the parade shown in the film since I saw the medics marching on the airfield. This airfield was a short distance from my quarters when I was at Ft Lewis. I was unable to find the First Sergeant, however. I can't help but be proud of the accomplishments of this little runt of an American soldier,Audie Murphy. His heart was bigger than he was.

I am delighted to see a place to honor Audie Murphy. Growing up in the fifties he was one of my heroes. I recently visited Arlington National Cemetery and was honored to visit his grave site. I hope you have many visitors to this site, and it keeps his memory alive.

I have to agree with the statements made in the first paragraphs of this webpage. I do belive the history, and legacy of Mr.Murhpy is something that has slipped away somewhat...My reason is I dont believe I read or even heard of Audie Murphy during any of my high school years, in any of my history books,,,and I took advanced history. Sure I heard of Dr. Martin Luther King,John F.Kennedy, and and a host of others (all of which were very prominent and person we should remember too) but for a person like Mr. Murphy to come from where he was in life as a young man and do what he done,,,,should never be forgot.I only learned of him while talking with my dad and grandfather one day years ago and done a little reseach on him,,,thanks in part to my mother-in-law at the time. She was a fan of his during his acting carreer. I guess in the days moral corruption and political correctness one is easy to forget that because of men like Audie Murphy gave us the right to go and do as we see neccessary within the bondaries of our law, speak our minds, and voice or opinions about whoever we feel like and not be an oppresed people.

Hello, Our family is a homeschooling family, and our favorite subject is history. We have recently purchased a lot of history books written in the 1950s; we bought a majority of the Landmark series of history books, and are very thrilled with what we have been reading, and inspired by the heroism of many soldiers who fought for America's (our) freedom. One Landmark book, "Medal of Honor Heroes," introduced us to Audie Murphy. We then purchased the video, "To Hell and Back," and are thankful to have had a small glimpse into Audie's life, both as a child and as a soldier. We thank God for men such as he, who were willing to risk their life for our freedom and for the freedom of others. God Bless You, also for hosting this web site.

I first knew of Audie when I was ten years old and went to the theater to see To Hell and Back. At that time I think the movies were $.25. My brother and I stayed for two showings and we called out father to come and watch the last showing with us. He has always left a place in my heart for him and all other service personel like him who have given their all and those who are now protecting us. My wife and I went to Arlington National Cemetery for the first time in 2000. We headed to see President Kennedy's grave and the tomb of the unknown. The next place I had to see was Audie's grave before we walked around the rest of the cemetery grounds. God rest all the military souls wherever they are buried.

I am very proud of Audie Murphy. I have his movie "To hell and back" and I have his GI Joe figure. My dad told me about him and I have been a fan of his since. I am 8 years old and I'm in second grade. Thank you Audie for you service. Love Michael.

I just watched again To hell and back - Though never in the service I am a military brat as we like to call ourselves. I have seen many movies about the war but in any way can they truly give us a depth of the carnage that Audie and the other WWII veterans had to deal with. PTSD is truly troubling and I wish that more celebrities and veterans would come forth as Audie tried toward the end of his life. I have my freedom because of men and women like Audie. It wasn't until after his death that I truly found out about him. To Hell and Back to him was a very understated statement. I am hoping to find his book and read it now. I am also hoping that someone tells his story again from the war until his death. Though I know he is gone I salute his memory.

When I was a boy, activity at my home would stop whenever an Audie Murphy movie would come on the television. My father greatly admired Audie Murphy and taught us at a very young age about his service to our country. He was my father's hero which made him my hero. Audie Murphy was the kind of man that makes me proud to be an American and a Texan. God Bless You Audie!
