Basically I was making a jokey play on words by associating Audie Murphy with "Auld Lang Syne", but then I was asked who is Audie Murphy and all I could come up with was movie actor whose name my FiL would recognize, so I ran a quick web search.

According to "The Audie L. Murphy Memorial Website" one of the things illustrated by the following Youtube is how the media landscape has changed in regards to the way a 2013 posthumous honor was covered in comparison to news of his death in 1971, but I also think it serves as a nice introduction to the man.
