W.A. Sidney Outpost 52 Dissolved
Society Outpost #52 was chartered many years ago. The Outpost consisted of some 70 Veterans of the Korean War who served in Love Company of the 15th. Sadly, the Outpost is now down to nine (9) members. By decision of the remaining members, the Outpost is dissolved. The members were contacted and each was asked to choose a new Outpost or to be “At Large.”

OP #22's Award Presentation Ceremony, on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at 1300 hrs (1:00 p.m.), to salute 13 other Korean War Veterans who will receive their "Ambassador for Peace Medal". This OP #22 ceremony,will be held in the Long Beach VA Medical Center Chapel, 5901 E. Seventh St., Long Beach, CA 90822.
This beautiful "French "Legion of Honor" medal, and a quality Certificate of Appreciation, were originally presented to Korean War Vets, who were not able to travel to Korea, through the "Revisit Korea" recognition program. It is also available to veterans who participated in Peacekeeping operations until the end of 1955, as an expression of gratitude (by the South Korean people). The medal's purpose is to show thanks to the Allied Forces who defended Korea from Communist aggression between June 25,1950 and July 27, 1953. Korean War vets may apply for this medal from the Korean Embassy/Consulate that is nearest to their home.

There will be a panel discussion with a combination of recently published authors on Audie as well as some people who met Audie.
Actress and producer Terry Moore will be our celebrity guest speaker this year. She has starred in 77 feature films and listed among her leading men are such Hollywood legends including Burt Lancaster, John Wayne, Cary Grant, Mickey Rooney, Robert Wagner and, of course, Audie Murphy. Two of her most well-known films include Mighty Joe Young and Come Back Little Sheba in which she received an Academy Award nomination for her role. Terry starred with Audie in Cast a Long Shadow in 1959.

Audie Murphy Petition Draws Major Endorsements
Murphy: a pioneer in PTSD awareness
September 9, 2013
by David Phillips
Audie Murphy in Uniform

Endorsements on the Audie Murphy Presidential Medal of Freedom Petition read like a VIP address book. Distinguished Americans such as Melvin Laird, Bob Dole, General Tommy Franks, Charlie Duke, Toby Keith, Dan Rather, Barbara Eden and countless others too numerous to mention. In addition to those named above, three-fourths of the 79 living Medal of Honor recipients have offered forth their endorsements.
Audie Murphy – his legacy continues
Honors are rendered and tributes bestowed by great societies so that we may remember the person; and the accomplishments of that person’s life and in doing so perpetuate their memory for future generations. Audie Murphy has certainly been accorded many tributes over the years since his untimely passing and his legacy continues to grow with the passage of time.

David Phillips
 Mr. Phillips is the Executive Administrator of the Audie Murphy Presidential Medal of Freedom Petition Campaign. In addition, he initially recommended Audie Murphy for this honor and spearheaded the campaign for its passage.
In the years immediately following World War II, “shell-shock” was often associated with “cowardliness” or “physical weakness” but Murphy, while never glamorizing his own heroism, managed to parlay his international stardom and name recognition to his advantage and helped turn the tables on the stigma often associated with PTSD. He spoke candidly with the media about the emotional effects of the war and the nightmares associated with it. In doing so, Audie Murphy served as an advocate for returning veterans of both the Korean and Vietnam wars and and used his stardom to  broadcast the issue of PTSD and the need for early diagnosis and treatment of this illness like a conference calling service, injecting awareness into the mainstream of American society.
The petition has the endorsement of more than 100 general officers, 50 of the 79 living medal of honor recipients, moonwalkers, members of congress, & celebrities. The nomination will be based upon Audie Murphy's advocacy for better treatment of veterans suffering from PTSD
