"Loyalty to your comrades, when you come right down to it, has more to do with bravery in battle than even patriotism does. You may want to be brave, but your spirit can desert you when things really get rough. Only you find you can't let your comrades down and in the pinch they can't let you down either.
-- Audie Murphy, born on this date, June 20th, 1924.


  1. A true man from a time when hardship produced many real men..... And not just Audie Murphy. The same era produced Desmond Doss.....the conscientious objector who won the Medal Of Honor and saved vast numbers of soldiers on Okinawa. There were millions more like them from that era.

  2. When having a pair wasn't considered politically incorrect!
