Purple Heart Profiles

The Purple Heart Medal is awarded to members of the Armed Forces of the United States for wounds received in action from a hostile force. 


The combat wounded members of Chapter 758, Military Order of the Purple Heart will be profiled in a continuing series.  These men were not only valorous on the battlefields, they also became astute citizens in our society.  Much is spoken about "Role Models" these days.  Read these profiles and you will understand the true meaning more profoundly.
