"The thing I'm most proud of in my lifetime is being in the Marine Corps" - Martin 'Murph' Murphy
A loader in the first tank to make it off the beach on Iwo Jima, arguably the bloodiest Pacific battle of WWII, 'Murph' Murphy would see action in 6 tanks before the battle's end. Listening to his war tales from the battle evokes the familiar - and deserved - pride through which we view the WWII generation. So young. So dedicated. So sacrificial.
This is: "Murphy, a service story".
