Not SF related, but I thought the old man deserved the honor.

Charles P. Murray Jr., who received the Medal of Honor for single-handedly preventing 200 German soldiers from attacking an American battalion while leading a scouting mission in France during World War II, died Friday 8/12/11 at his home in Columbia, S.C. He was 89. Rest in peace Colonel.

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti amen.
In pace requiescat Sir. Dominus vobiscum.
Thank you for your service.

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae coelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in infernum detrude. Amen.

I was fortunate enough to meet COL Murray last year when I joined my local MOPH here in Columbia, SC.


God Bless him and his family. Rest in Peace Sir.
