Arlington Off The Beaten Path: 35 reviews and 92 photos


Audie Murphy was one of America's most highly decorated soldiers of World War II, earning the Congressional Medal of Honor and 32 other US and foreign medals and citations. He fought in North Africa, Salerno, Anzio, Rome, southern France, and eastern France, all before the age of 21. Later he wrote his wartime memoirs called To Hell and Back, starred in some 40 movies, and even enjoyed a mildly successful country music career. He died in a plane crash in 1971 at the young age of 46.

Murphy's grave is located next to the Memorial Amphitheater and is said to be the second most visited grave in Arlington.
