Murray has been supportive of his wife’s career. When they had their first child, Shauntay was in dilemma about whether to give full-time to her newborn or to continue her Military career. At that time, Latavius didn’t force his now wife for anything and let her pursue her career. Talking about this, the NFL star said:

She decided to stay active, and I fully support her. When you have those desires before the relationship, you have to do everything you can to make sure that person is still being the person she wants to be, and you support her. It’s the same with my career, so it’s only right that I do the same for her.

Due to his wife’s involvement in the military, the NFL star shows unconditional support towards the US Army, this might be the reason Murray has been nominated for the prestigious Salute to Service Award many times.
