Raymond Murphy was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions near the Imjin River, North Korea in February of 1953. During the aftermath of a failed assault on enemy positions Raymond Murphy organized the withdrawal of the battered troops and repeatedly went into the continuing fight to retrieve fallen members of two other platoons. He continued to go back into enemy fire even after being wounded twice until all the men were accounted for.
