All soldiers have earned the Medal of Honor.

Both Audie Murphy and Garlin Conner served in World War II.
Each soldier has previously earned a different medal, besides the Medal of Honor.
Audie Murphy and Garlin Conner were ranked as 1st Lieutenants, while Daniel was a Sergeant.
I chose Garlin M. Conner as my soldier because of how non-chalant and dissmisve he was when people praised him for his incredible work. I couldn't quite figure how he could be so humble, about what he had done on the battlefield. When asked about World War II and what he had done, he simply replied by saying," I'd done what I had to do and come home, that's all there is to it. "He put his life on the line to stop the enemy from advancing, and he went as far to directing his artillery to strike his position even if it meant he would not survive. I mean that's something I could never do, and I don't quite think a lot of people would too.
I believe that the word "Valor" truly represents him. After all, valor means courage in the face of danger. Garlin M. Conner, volunteered to go out in the heart of the battlefield while others did not, Conner is a paragon of valor and that's all there is to it.
When Duty Calls: A War Movie.
Daniel Daly was awarded the Meda of Honor twice becouse he extinguished a fire in an ammunition dump at
Lucy-Le-Bocage, nickname "Lucy Birdcage". He also was outgunned and outnumberred, but he and his two houndred men battled against the German forces in Balleu Wood, while they started to fight Daniel Dally unasisted captured a machinegun-emplacement with only hand grenades and a colt (outomatic pistol) wich all of this lead to a succesful victory.
