William K. Murphy Honored

Lauren and Mr. Murphy (reduced)I’ve spoken about my grandfather, Bill Murphy, here before.  Yesterday some students from Plymouth interviewed him as part of a project to record the memories of World War II veterans for the Marshall County Museum Historic Crossroads Center.  Considering that my grandfather turned 100 years old this year, the pool of survivors has to be getting shallow.

ABC 57 picked up the interview and had a short clip on the news last night.  You can see it here if you’re interested.  In the quote on the website he says that he was drafted, but actually Grandpa worked at Kingsbury Ordinance Plant and since that was a necessary service, he was not eligible for the draft.  He quit that job and volunteered for the service, turning down the waiver.
