    I was watching Porkchop Hill and a wounded soldier came back to the front and the commander said, Who do you think you are, Audie Murphy? :jj:

    Fun fact: The battle at the end of Fury was based on the heroics of Audie Murphy.

    The Germans scored a direct hit on an M10 tank destroyer, setting it alight, forcing the crew to abandon it.[58] 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 telephone while the Germans aimed fire directly at his position.[59] 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.[60] For an hour, Murphy stood on the 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.[58] Murphy rejoined his men, disregarding his own wound, and led them back to repel the Germans. He insisted on remaining with his men while his wounds were treated.[58] For his actions that day he was awarded the Medal of Honor.[61] 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.
