PATRIOTIC HALL TO GET PLAQUE FOR MURPHY.
"Patriotic Hall at 1816 S. Figueroa St., will be the site of a special county plaque dedicated to the memory of Audie Murphy, America's most decorated hero of World War II.

On a motion yesterday by Supervisor Kenneth Hahn, chairman of the Veterans and Military Affairs Department, the supervisors ordered a plaque placed on the main floor of the county-owned facility some time in the near future.
The war hero-actor died Friday along with five others in a plane crash near Roanoke, VA.

"Audie Murphy was an outstanding American who served his country well," said Hahn, "and it is only fitting that a plaque be placed in his memory at Patriotic Hall."
Hahn's motions also included an order lowering flags at the hall and the Coliseum Sports Arena to half staff until after the funeral."

In a newspaper article published on June 3, 1971, the Los Angeles Times made the seen above. Later, on November 11, 1972, a large bronze plaque, measuring 21.75" x 31.75", honoring the memory of Audie Murphy was permanently displayed in the lobby of Patriotic Hall, County of Los Angeles, Department of Military and Vertans Affairs.
