Topic: Purple Heart
I have a good friend who was injured twice in the Vietnam War. On both occasions he received a Purple Heart Certificate, but never got the medal.
How do we go about getting him the medal. I have great respect for servicemen and feel he should be honored with it.
Thank you for visiting ClassBrain.com! The staff here also has great respect and admiration for our countrys servicemen so were glad to help.
Here are a couple of links where you can find the information on requesting your friends Purple Heart medal. According to the information we found, medals need to be requested from the military branch he served.
Home of the Heroes
Decorations and Awards
Air Force Link
Hopefully this will help your friend get the medals he has earned.
Just to let you know, ClassBrain has joined with The Library of Congress in the pursuit of our countrys vanishing history by launching the ClassBrain Veterans Memories Project. This might be of interest to you.
