Pocket Ninja: There are dozens of sites out there about Audie Murphy, and we get a goddamn Yahoo auto launch video that's not even solely about him? Christ.
TheBeastOfYuccaFlats: He's no Sgt Stubby.
I_C_Weener: He's no Sgt. York.
midwestatheist: a 200 killstreak.. what kind of killstreak reward do you get for that
Vectron: I know it veterans day but it seems like Fark is sucking WWII's dick every goddamned day.What's so great about war?
foo monkey: Who didn't know about Audie Murphy? Seriously? I get that it was a long time ago and he's been dead over 40 years, but EVERYBODY knew about Audie Murphy. This article is a reverse-Romero.
Boloxor the Insipid: Are we sure he wasn't just a piece of propaganda? Who makes a movie about their own heroics?How do we know his story has any basis in fact?
Felgraf: Oh hey,t here we go. Guy Gabaldon. Single-handedly captured 1,500 troops over the course of the war.
ristst: But most regular folks don't know about his extraordinary efforts to help other veterans suffering from PTSD. He brought a lot of attention to the disorder later in his life, and his involvement played an important role in relation to veterans eventually receiving treatment rather than scorn. He spoke candidly about his struggles with it, and he encouraged the government and military to take it seriously and DO SOMETHING about it.His first wife said he once saw pictures of German orphans, and cried bitterly over the thought that he had perhaps contributed to their plight by killing their parents during the war.
Starhawk: foo monkey: Who didn't know about Audie Murphy? Seriously? I get that it was a long time ago and he's been dead over 40 years, but EVERYBODY knew about Audie Murphy. This article is a reverse-Romero.I'm 37 and I'd never heard his name except in passing. I thought he was an actor. So I learned something today.
FarkedOver: [upload.wikimedia.org image 242x269]Posted before and I'll post it again. These volunteers were MUCH more badass (as were others from other countries joining the international brigades). They served in integrated (many races, and women as well) units against fascism in Spain. They returned to America only be looked upon with suspicion and labelled P.A. (premature anti-fascists) because they fought against fascism before anyone else decided it was a problem. They didn't receive benefits, they didn't receive praise. They received an FBI file because they were "subversive" and were dismissed as commies.Today we just cut off benefits to all vets to save money. Sorry, you didn't want those foodstamps any way, did you?America has had a tragic history of neglecting her veterans.
Roadogs: Vectron: What's so great about war?War sux. Not living under the rule of a fascist dictator, that's the cool part.
Vectron: When has the US been in danger of that?

Idealist1984: Just came here to say "200 kills" is not a farking score in a video game, and you should consider that they might well have been 200 brave men with families. I'm sure there are a few Germans and Japanese who did similar things to American service members. War is hell.
