    Default Lt Col Jesse Murga

    I knew this gentleman by way of his son who works at a Tire company in the area. We spoke a few times when I did see him. I know he was with the 511th PIR, 11th Airborne. Very nice quiet man. RIP Lt Col Murga.

    Lt Col Murga is also on this page from Paratroopers of the fifties. He was a Cpt at the time in the 11th Recon Co. He is shown in the b&w picture.

    God bless this man and his family. One of the old-timers who blazed the way for us.
