A military photo of Audie Murphy
On March 5, 1945, 1st Lieutenant Audie Murphy was called to Nancy, France by order of his Division Commander, Major General (MG) John "Iron-Mike" O'Daniel. On that day, MG O'Daniel presented to 1st Lieutenant Murphy the Distinguished Service Cross and Silver Star. After MG O'Daniel pinned the medals on Audie's uniform, he pulled out of his pocket a Medal of Honor. Without giving it to Audie, MG O'Daniel showed the medal to him and stated that General Alexander Patch, the 7th Army Commander, would soon pin it on Audie during a different ceremony. MG O'Daniel is holding the Medal Of Honor in this photo.

The photo was taken by Staff Sergeant William Heller (1910-1972), 3rd Signal Company, 3rd Infantry Division who served as an official signal corps photographer between 1943-1945. This photo was contributed by his son Rick Heller.
