    When I read the citations of Medal of Honor recipients, I'm always struck with a sense of awe and almost disbelief at their actions. Murray went on to serve until 1973 in Korea and Vietnam retiring as a full Colonel. The Country and the Army owe you and all of your compatriots a debt of gratitude that we can't begin to repay.
    RIP

    Incredible story… though he lived a long life it’s still sad to see one of our nations heroes pass. My prayers go out to Col. Murray and his family.

    I am also in awe when I read the MOH Citations. That we can have such people that live among us is amazing. They only wanted to go home and live a normal life but many gave above and beyond.
