The Petition and What You Can Do Jan 24. 2010 | Comments (2)
Dear Fellow Patriots,
Audie Murphy is recognized as the "Most Decorated Combat Soldier of WWII" having received every award for valor this country could bestow.
His tributes are numerous and yet he is deserving of one more: The U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom. Audie Murphy gave so much to this country both during and after the war. Through his courage and humility became a role model for the youth of my generation and many generations of Americans yet to come.
Our veterans are dying by the thousands every week; time is imperative!
With each passing day, the name and memory of Audie Murphy is slipping further and further into the deep annals of history and the American public is forgetting the legacy and sacrifices of this awe inspiring man.
I cannot achieve success with this petition drive without your full and immediate support!
If you have not signed the Petition to bestow upon Audie Murphy our Nation's highest civilian award; the U.S. Presidential Medal of Freedom, please sign it now.
You can do an invaluable service however, by spreading the word and helping to gather additional signatures. I am fighting this war alone and I desperately need your support in acquiring as many signatures as possible.
If you are a non US Citizen, you are invited to sign as this award is often bestowed upon foreigners and it demonstrates that Audie Murphy had an extensive international following.
When I developed the concept for this Petition, I simply sought out a site that would facilitate ease of hosting, the ability to add a photo to the Petition, and the ability to print the Petition when complete and the cost involved.
I did not consider the ramifications of offending those who might be of the many various political affilliations in this country.
The previous version of this Petition was hosted on another petition website. Although it met my standard mentioned above, I feel as though some were offended by the Website it was hosted on. After reaching almost 2,000 signatures on that site, I decided to host a new version of the Petition on a less "offensive" hosting site, hence the Petition that you are viewing.
The memory and legacy of Audie Murphy should not be a part of the political discussions of this Country or of the "left vs. right" agendas.
Some sixty-five years ago, the men of "the greatest generation" helped liberate the world of tryanny. They went where they were told to go, did what they were asked to do, returned home triumphant and never protested about their service to our Nation.
Audie Murphy was one of those. Please honor him with your signature and support of this noble undertaking.
I thank you in advance for your time and support in this long over due endeavor. If you have already signed the Petition, then I doubly thank you.
Should you have any comments, questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me, through the email link on this site.
