May 28 marks the anniversary of Audie Murphy's death.  He was the most decorated highly decorated military member during WWII, and he went on to become an actor and songwriter.

Having been awarded every Army medal/commendation for valor, including the Medal of Honor and awards from other countries, Murphy is still an inspiration for many who join the military today.

A quick read of his bio on Wikipedia or at the Audie Murphy memorial website will fill you with a sense of pride in a man you never knew.
