For many years Audie Murphy was recognized as the most decorated US soldier of WWII. Murphy was awarded the Medal of Honor and the Distinguished Service Cross, the two highest American medals, among a total of 33 decorations, including five from France and one from Belgium. Most of Murphy's service was as an enlisted man, though his Medal of Honor came after he accepted a battlefield commission and was commanding a company in the 15th Infantry Regiment of the 3rd Infantry Division. Murphy finished the war as a captain.Some contend today that Major Matt Urban was the most decorated soldier. All of Urban's service was as an officer.
