This link will take you to the story of Elliot Williams of Darlington, SC. This man makes Kerry, even if he really earned his medals, look like a pathetic excuse for a hero.
Elliot Williams won 3 purple hearts, 3 bronze stars, 2 silver stars, the Navy cross, the congressional medal of honor. I lived within a few miles of this man until his death a few years ago and I never once heard of him touting his record to anyone. If a war record qualifies one for the presidency, Elliot Williams should have been the king of the entire world.

I am not doubting the fact that there are true American heroes that received 3 purple hearts, but what I am trying to find out is how many got 3 purple hearts and got their ticket out of country.

So far, sadly no info...
