    hmmm. just found it. she was some gal.

    October 7, 1923 - April 8, 2010
    Pamela Murphy, widow of WWII hero and actor, Audie Murphy, died peacefully at her home on April 8, 2010. She is survived by sons, Terry and James. Pam established her own distinctive 30 year career working as a patient liaison at the Sepulveda VA Hospital, where she was much beloved. Services will be held at Forest Lawn (Hollywood Hills) on Friday April 16 at 2:30PM



    After Audie died, they all became her boys. Every last one of them.

    Any soldier or Marine who walked into the Sepulveda VA hospital and care center in the last 35 years got the VIP treatment from Pam Murphy.

    The widow of Audie Murphy – the most decorated soldier in World War II – would walk the hallways with her clipboard in hand making sure her boys got to see a specialist or doctor — STAT. If they didn't, watch out.

    I'm not finding much in the way of coverage. I'm trying to find out if she received any sort of Military Honors, a color guard, 21 guns, taps, anything at the funeral. Uniform or no, I think a life of this type of service to veterans deserves some honors.

    There's very, very little coverage of the funeral available though.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

    no I don't think she was eligible for any of that. I don't think she served. if he was buried in a national vet cemetary she can be also. free of charge. i have this set up for me and my wife.

    I was more wondering if the Vet's she helped and served gave the honors. I'm sure no one would have minded.
