Tips for writers and musing about writing and life

I highly recommend you take a look at this Audie Murphy site


I highly recommend that you take a look at this “Audie L. Murphy Memorial Website,” for a full account of this remarkable man.

As a follow-up on my last post, I felt compelled to direct you to a wealth of information about this remarkable man, who was not just one of my personal favorites in movies I saw as a kid, but more importantly was a true American hero. Personally, I am “anti-war” almost to the point of being a pacifist — ALMOST. But you cannot ignore the atrocities of World War II and the gallantry of this incredible man and the role he played in that war.

As a writer, I encourage you to visit the website and read the various documents on the site, including the fascinating affidavits presented there relating to Murphy’s Medal of Honor. They’re photocopies displayed on the site and not always easy to read, but I hope you’ll take the time. If you do any writing about war, about true warriors, you absolutely MUST learn about Audie Murphy.
