Looking for sister of Tracy Murrey
Posted by Amorette F. Allison (+1908) 8 years ago
I received this at the Star and am posting it here for wider circulation:

My best friend in college was a young and gallant man from Miles City Montana. His name was Tracy Murrey. He gave his life in Vietnam in 1967 on the hill 875 few of us will remember. His sister Jane is somewhere I believe in the Miles City Area. Tracy received the DSC but after reading the citation it should have been the CMOH. I am an old man now and when Tracy was in the highlands I was in the delta. We lived together for 3 years better than I have ever lived with a wife. I know I am fishing but please if anyone can find Tracys sister I would love to hear from her. It has been a long long time.

I'm thinking this may refer to Jane Anderson/ Mrs. Richard Anderson of Tongue River. I know her brother was killed in 'Nam.

This won't help the gentleman who started the thread, but I was curious to learn something about Tracy Murrey. These links don't tell anything about his life in Miles, but he was obviously a brave and good man.

I knew Tracy and Jane from the neighborhood and school. His loss was a damn shame. He was a truly fine gentleman and a great role model for a young punk like me. I didn't know him that well, but his death definitely brought the horror of Viet Nam home to many of us, where it stayed for most of our lives.
