This week’s guest is Barclay Murphy, the wife of late Army Major, Ed Murphy. Ed spent 16 years in the U.S. Army; his last assignment was in Afghanistan in 2005. He was killed in a helicopter accident on April 6th, 2005. Since her husband’s passing, Barclay has worked extensively with The Gold Star Wives of America to change laws that were written many years ago for survivors’ benefits and spouses’ benefits after their spouse was killed in combat. Barclay sits down with Mark to share Ed’s story and her story, and the sacrifice of her family.
