Whispering Smith was a western that starred the WW2 hero turned actor, Audie Murphy. Do any of you remember that show? Here are some pictures of that show that may refresh your memory.
Yes, I watch that old show GET TV on the Western Channel and really enjoy it. It was well done and all the actors did a great job.
OK, just in case you didn't know that Audie Murphy was a war hero, here is a picture of him in uniform with some of his medals:
And of course his medals:
This just goes to show you that looks are deceiving. This war hero, who may have single handedly killed more enemy soldiers than any other single foot soldier, was not real tall (5'-8"). He was not mean and scary looking, but soft spoken. But yes, he was the most decorated American combat soldier of that war and received every military combat award for valor available from the U.S. Army. He also received French and Belgian awards for heroism.
He was only nineteen years old when he single-handedly held off a whole company of German soldiers for an hour, and then led a successful counterattack while wounded and out of ammunition. Now if that doesn't make a person a hero, nothing will. Audie didn't live a long life, though. He passed away at the age of 46, but he sure did pack a lot living in those 46 years. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
