The award of the Purple Heart is but a small token of appreciation to those who gave a bit more in their service to our Country. There is much to be said in the statement that: “All gave some; some gave more; some gave all.”

The Purple Heart is a United States military decoration awarded in the name of the President to those who have been wounded or killed while serving on or after April 5, 1917 with the U.S. military
