Many in my family have served and some died serving in the military ... I honor every single one.  As a veteran, anything "military" gives me a sense of pride and respect ... All gave some and some gave all.

On this National Purple Heart Day may we bow our heads in silence and remember all who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us.

My husband's grandfather served in WWI and survived every major battle.  He received a great number of medals, was wounded in battle, but never got the purple heart due to wraping his wounds and continuing to fight. He was a tough guy at that time.

I had a cousin, now deceased,  in the Marine Corps, Master Gunnery Sergeant, James Travers.  He served in the Korean Conflict and in the Vietnam War.  He had four purple hearts.

My next door Neighbor is also a purple heart recipient.

I know people with Purple Hearts. It is a medal I'm glad I never received and my heart is with those that did as well as those who came back with mental wounds. There are not enough words...

Many who did not earn medals did more for the country. They never got recognized. I know one who was wounded by own helicopter fire got a medal to run away from an ambush. The situation was so embrassing, his officer gave him a medal to cover up the poor leadership embarrasement.
