:lol: His book and life are definitely not a cartoon show. You can't use the actual for which "heck" is the euphemism. Even if you type it in the forum software automatically replaces it with "heck". Just Google "Audie Leon Murphy" and you'll find it.
I was trying to be humorous but I don't think it came off as I intended. I'm a child of the 60's but in my neighborhood most of our dad's were a little older and WWII vets. Even in the 60's Audie Murphy was still one of the best guys to be when we would organize our back yard armies. Plus he was in half the old Westerns we watched on Saturday afternoons.
Not to worry. I took it as a humorous comment as noted by the LOL smiley. I added the comment as a reaction to the what gives emoticon. All in good humor.

Audie Murphy "To Heck and Back"

I just finished reading Audie Murphy's account of his WWII experience. Although I'd seen the movie when I was a kid and a couple of times afterward I'd never read his book. I picked up a copy in September when I last visited the museum dedicated to him in Greenville. It was stark and grim and I was surprised by the candid language (after all it's a war book), however it's mild compared to what we read and hear in books and movies. I highly recommend it. Just in case some here don't know who Audie Murphy is, he is America's most highly decorated soldier of WWII. He lied about his age to join the army at 17. I always had an interest in him as he was a contemporary of my mother and her cousins around Farmersville, Greenville and Celeste. According to the stories they told he was a mean motor scooter when riled.
