Monday Memorial Movie – To Hell and Back

   Posted by: lizjohnson   in Movie Review

audie-murphyIn honor of Memorial Day, I thought I’d recommend a military movie that I used to watch at least once a week when I was in Jr. High. It played on AMC at least once a day, it seemed like. To Hell and Back is the true story of Audie Murphy, one of the most decorated war heroes in audie-murphy2American history.

Audie starred as himself in the film, which is based on the book of the same name that he wrote. According to Wikipedia, Audie’s grave at Arlington National Cementary is the second most visited behind that of President John F. Kennedy.

Audie’s is a pretty amazing story from WWII, and I’d definitely recommend the movie–even if it is in black and white. :)

Thanks to all of the men and women who have served our country in the military over the years, including my dad. Thanks, Dad!

Happy Memorial Day!

I love that movie, and I love you, sweetie. You’re welcome. I don’t remember doing all that much. I was just fortunate to be one of those who returned home. God had a plan for me. If I hadn’t come home, you wouldn’t be here. Love you!
