Most Decorated World War II Vet

A campaign continues to get the most decorated U.S. veteran of World War II his own postage stamp according to the Holland Sentinel in Holland, Michagan.

The paper reports that according to the Polish American Congress, Lt. Colonel Matt Urban is the most decorated soldier of World War II... not Audie Murphy.

Reporter Steve Ralph writes, "Audie Murphy having had a career in Hollywood movies, is better known, but was surpassed when Urban received his Congressional Medal of Honor from President Jimmy Carter in 1980."

Murphy was honored with a stamp in 2000.

Shown above are members of the Holland V.F.W. Honor Guard with a photo of Urban and the Audie Murphy stamp.
