As Americans, we’re blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world. But all too often we tend to take for granted the heroes among us who fought and sacrificed to protect us, our ideals, and our freedom.
Col. Charles P. Murray Jr. was one such hero. In fact, he showed us the true meaning of the word “hero.”
We lost a great South Carolinian on Aug. 12, when Col. Murray passed away. I was fortunate to have known Chuck as a friend for many years.
