Pueblo native Raymond G. (Jerry) Murphy passed away Friday morning in a Pueblo nursing home, he was 77.
Murphy is one of four Pueblo soldiers to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Pueblo is now known as "Home of Heroes" because of Murphy, Drew Dix, Carl Sitter and William Crawford. Murphy was one of only three living recipients still in Colorado and one of only 110 across the county.
The Medal of Honor is the highest military award that can be bestowed upon a member of the United States Armed Forces; Teddy Roosevelt lobbied for one but never received it, and General George Patton said "I'd sell my immortal soul for that Medal."
President Dwight D. Eisenhower upon presenting Raymond G. "Jerry" Murphy with his Medal in 1953 commented, "What is it...something in the water out there in Pueblo? All you guys turn out to be heroes!".
The City Council adopted the "Home of Heroes" theme because with four living recipients that is more than any other city in the United States.
The death of Jerry Murphy means there is only one Pueblo Medal of Honor winner still living, that being Drew Dix.
