We drove up to Greenville, TX this morning to see the Audie Murphy Museum. Part of the museum is dedicated to the local cotton industry that flourished here for a hundred years.
This large bronze ststue was done by a local artist and depicts Audie Murphy in a scene from where he won one of the his many medals.
These are the many medals won by the most decorated soldier of WWII. Missing for some reason is the Medal of Honor, but the ribbon is at the top of the ribbons.
In 2 1/2 years, he went from PFC to 1st LT as he fought in numerous campaigns in several theaters of the war.
We had a good time here and spent more than 2 hours observing all the various exhibits. We highly recommend it if you are in this part of Texas just east of Dallas. The cost is $6 and $4 for vets and seniors.
