Military G.I. stops German tank with rifle

Comment: This is the story that my dad told me. During the battle of the bulge a
sentry at a crossroad stopped a german tank by shooting down the barrel of
the tanks cannon. Which hit the fuse of the shell in the cannon or by
jamming the shell in the cannon by wedging in between the shell and the
side of the barrel. Supposedly it was in stars and stripes that the guy
got a medal for facing down a tank with only a rifle and winning.
