CRAP !!
Audie originally tried to enlist in the Marines, and then the Paratroopers;
however, both turned him down because of his lack of weight and thin body
frame. When he enlisted, Audie was 5ft 5in and weighed in at 110 pounds;
during his enlistment he grew two inches and gained 35 pounds!
Audi was the most decorated soldier of WWII.
His achievements are legion, but one feat, for me, stands above all the
others;
The Germans scored a direct hit on an M10 tank destroyer, setting it alight,
forcing the crew to abandon it. Murphy ordered his men to retreat to
positions in the woods, remaining alone at his post, shooting his M1 carbine
and directing artillery fire via his field radio while the Germans aimed
fire directly at his position. Murphy mounted the abandoned, burning tank
destroyer and began firing its .50 caliber machine gun at the advancing
Germans, killing a squad crawling through a ditch towards him. For an hour,
Murphy stood on the flaming tank destroyer returning German fire from foot
soldiers and advancing tanks, killing or wounding 50 Germans. He sustained a
leg wound during his stand, and stopped only after he ran out of ammunition.
Murphy rejoined his men, disregarding his own injury, and led them back to
repel the Germans. He insisted on remaining with his men while his wounds
were treated.

For his actions that day, he was awarded the Medal of Honor. The 3rd
Infantry Division was awarded the Presidential Unit Citation for its actions
at the Colmar Pocket, giving Murphy a Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster for the
emblem.

On 16 February, Murphy was promoted to first lieutenant and was awarded the
Legion of Merit for his service from 22 January 1944 to 18 February 1945.
He was moved from the front lines to Regimental Headquarters and made a
liaison officer.
