    Second Lt. Audie L. Murphy: Murphy was assigned to 1st Battalion, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division and landed at Casablanca on February 20. After Operation Torch’s success, his first taste of combat came in Sicily where he proved a highly skilled Soldier and marksman. Throughout the war, Audie demonstrated extraordinary skill in surviving tough situations. Besides the Medal of Honor, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, two Silver Stars, the Legion of Merit, two Bronze Stars (one for valor), three Purple Hearts, the French Legion of Honor and the Croix de Guerre (with silver star), and the Belgian Croix de Guerre (with palm). At war’s end, Murphy was considered the “most decorated Soldier of World War II.”
