unsure.gif Hawkeye Joe signs witha quote from "To Hell and Back" about Audie Murphy asking for his Thompson back. I've probably seent that movie 200 times since I was eight years old, and can yell out most of the lines in the film as I watch it. I read his biography a few years ago, "No Name on the Bullet" and recall that his weapon of choice usually was an M1 Carbine. Does anyone know if he ever carried a Thompson or that was just Hollywood? I do remember from the book that at a very young age he borrowed someone's .22 rifle to hunt rabbits for food for his family, and he always came back with spare ammo because he never seemed to miss. Same when he was killing Germans.
