For many military personnel, a Purple Heart is an award that many want to avoid. While it is one of the most honorable awards presented to U.S. military personnel on behalf of the president of the United States, it is an indicator that a person was injured or killed during combat with an enemy of the United States. The circumstances to qualify for the award tend to be precarious.
The following members are recipients of the Purple Heart:
Donal R. Elved
Brian C. Bass
Chris Bischoff
David Fraser
Kevin A Johnson
John W Luersen
Michael J Raabe
Daniel E Tyler
