I am 34 and a bad hip (replaced at 27) prevented me from my first career choice of the US Army. I have never seen combat? But from what I have heard from my Dad who was at Cam Ron Bay, my grandfather who was in Patton's Third and captured at the Battle of Bulge when his BAR finally ran out of shells, and my Great Grandfather who was shot in France in 1918, it seems rather stupid to get more than one Purple Hart. I do not mean to offend anyone who did get more than one and deserved it. Bob Dole and G.H. Bush got them for some serious injuires and we all knew how they were injuried. Why won't Kerry tell us? Is it becuase if you get shot more than once you look very stupid to get a second and a third time. Is it becuase he got his Purple Hart like Major Frank Burns did. A stray shell landed in the 4077 while he was pealing an egg or drinking coffee and he got burned and had Hot Lips recommend him for the metal. Is it unseal to get multiple Purple Harts? Please let me know.
