What do the most decorated US soldier in World War 1 and the most decorated US soldier in World War 2 have in common?
They were from Texas
Major Audie Murphy is generally considered to be the most decorated U.S. combat soldier in WW2 since WW2 until Lt. Colonel Matt Urban was considered to be the most decorated U.S. combat soldier and officer, ww2 in 1980 when he was awarded the Medal of Honor and some other prevously recommended decorations for WW2 --"The Matt urban Story", 1989.
I have interviewed multiple veterans. The answer I get to this question is always Tommy Prince. Prince is given the honour of being the most decorated First Nations soldier but he is also the most decorated Canadian soldier. I do not have documents to prove this only the testimony of multiple veterans who served in the military during the same years as Tommy Prince has.
