AUDIE MURPHY SAYS NEW U.S. ARMY BETTER THAN LAST WAR By BOB THOMAS AP Staff Writer HOLLYWOOD, June 17 — "New soldiers are better," observes Audie Murphy. "They don't fade away." Murphy came up with this comment after returning from Army duty in a film role in ("The Cimarron Kid.") I asi<ed him to compare the new Army to the one he knew in World War 11. "I thinlt today's Army is better," he said. "Sure, the average soldier is a heck of a lot younger. But there are enough officers and NCO's (non-commissioned officers) with combat experience to give them the know-how. That's what we didn't have in the last war — enough leaders with experience. "From an officer's standpoint,. I think it's much easier to command young men. And they have the physical stamina that older soldiers wouldn't have." What about younger men in combat? • * • • AGE DOESN'T MATTER in the front lines," he replied. "The first 24 hours is the crucial time. If a man gets through his first 24 hours of combat he's a veteran. No matter what his age is. After that, he can stand up under almost anything." Murphy, who won more medals than any other American soldier in the last war, added that the new soldiers are better trained. Training methods have improved through the experiences of World War 11. He said that conditions seemed to be better for enlisted men in the new Army. "They don't have to salute officers off the post, for example," he observed. Murphy will return for another tour of duty with the Army in August. • « * « TALK OF THE TOWN ...
