I only recently learned of COL Murray's passing as noted in the Americal Division Veterans' Association magazine. I had the honor of serving with COL Murray at Fort Jackson in 1971-72, after returning from Viet Nam.
He was a mentor, and as fine an officer and gentleman as ever I met in my time in the US Army.
I hope that his family and friends will be comforted by the evidence of the high esteem that COL Murray is held in, and the condolences of his fellow soldiers and friends, past and present. Rest in Peace COL, and God Bless you. A true American Hero.

It was my honor and distinct privilege to aide in laying to rest Col. Murray today. He was truly a brave man and real-life hero. There are not many times in my life where I have found it difficult to breathe due to being in the presence of such greatness. Today will be put on my list. It was obvious in today's service that he was not only respected, but a well-loved man. My condolences to those whose hearts are heavy today.
Respectfully,

As an enlisted man with the 1st Battle Group 3rd Infantry @ Ft. Myer from 1960-1962 it was a pleasure to work in the Adjustant's Office each day to see Col. Murray come to work. A truly outstanding soldier.

One can only hope to emulate such a man, an American hero, in such a way as to make him proud. I can offer only thanks now, and pray that he rests peacefully into eternity.

Colonel Murray was more than a friend, he was a mentor. With pleasure, I remember him as my Brigade Commander when I was a young Captain and Company Commander. Bless you!

I had the honor of meeting Colonel Murray when he took part in the July 4th Services at First Baptist Church in Columbia. He was a true American Hero. My prayers and thoughts are with his family during this time of loss. He was truly an inspiration and I consider it an honor to have met him.

It was a pleasure and privilege to meet Colonel Murray. He participated in our Celebration of Liberty programs at First Baptist Columbia several times and was always warm and gracious. He was a true American hero and also stood for Christ. He will be greatly missed by our city, our state and our country.
