"As they are retreating, he's going to hold off the Germans on his own with his rifle as the men retreat. He's also on his radio directing artillery fire to the German lines. Once he runs out of ammunition in his weapon. He gets into the burning tank which is again on fire and could blow up at any moment, and takes the machine gun and starts firing at the Germans. He does this for an hour on his own."
UPDATE: We want to just make a quick correction to a statement made in this episode - both Medal of Honor AND Legion of Merit can be worn around the neck.
