The Audie Murphy Story

Audie Leon Murphy was the most-decorated U.S. combat soldier of World War II. Among his 33 honors and decorations was the prestigious Congressional Medal of Honor, the U.S. military's highest award for valor. After the war, Murphy's fame came as a celebrated movie star, with 44 films to his credit, and a successful country music composer, collaborating with the likes of Eddie Arnold and Charlie Pride. In the 1960s, Murphy returned to his western roots at this very location, where he bred and raised his beloved quarter horses.

A true American hero, Murphy is buried with full military honors in Arlington National Cemetery. His gravesite is the second-most visited annually, surpassed only by President John F. Kennedy's. The U.S. Army has always declared that there will never be another Audie Murphy. Likewise, there will never be another Audie Murphy Ranch. 

Brookfield Residential, in partnership with the City of Menifee, continues this legacy with the thoughtful planning of a premiere master-planned community worthy of the Audie Murphy name.
