Don Murdock, Don't Call Me A Hero, The Story
In December 1986, Firefighter, Canadian singer/songwriter Don Murdock received high honors with Canada's “Medal of Bravery” from Jeanne Sauve, Canada's Governor General for his actions during two separate house fires where Don exhibited valor and brave actions. For many years Don rode the Rescue Truck with Canada’s Whitby Fire Department. During that time he witnessed many terrible and tragic thing none of which affected him as much as the events that unfolded before him on a fire that occurred in March of 1985. 
His song has not only helped Don come to terms with emotions that have haunted him since that night almost 28 years ago, but also makes good on a silent promise he made privately to a little girl who became an angel that night to one day honor her memory. 
Don't Call Me A Hero was the #1 DMDS download at Canadian
Country Radio. The song was also the DMDS #8 most active indie song regardless of genre at Canadian radio.
