Nice quick stop off the highway. Went to Audie's grave at Arlington, so this helped us wrap our minds around his accomplishments. A true hero.

A very nice tribute to Audie Murphy.

Good day view... we first spotted the WWII war hero statue in eerie nighttime illumination. But in any light a metal man brandishing a machine gun is cause to stop.
