Audie Leon Murphy (1926 –1971) was a much-decorated American soldier who served in the European Theater during World War II. He later became an actor, appearing in 44 American films, and also found some success as a country music composer.
In 27 months of combat action, Murphy became one of the most highly decorated United States soldiers of World War II. He received the Medal of Honor, the U.S. military's highest award for valor, along with 32 additional U.S. and foreign medals and citations, including five from France and one from Belgium.
Murphy's successful movie career included the extremely popular To Hell and Back (1955), which was based on his book of the same name (1949.) He also starred in an impressive 33 Hollywood Western films. He died in a plane crash in 1971 and was interred, with full military honors, in Arlington National Cemetery.
Audie Murphy's grave site is the second-most visited grave at Arlington, after that of President John F. Kennedy.
