I find it kind of interesting that they say Frank Kurtz was "the most decorated fighter pilot of World War II" when in fact, Frank Kurtz never flew fighters, only bombers, B-17s.
As to being the most decorated soldier of WW II, I was always led to believe that Audie Murphy was the most decorated soldier of WW II but I could be wrong on that point. 

Not to take anything away from Col. Kurtz, as he was definitely quite a figure in WW II.
