I just came across this which looks awfully suspicious:

Sailors stand together in An Thoi, Vietnam, on February 28, 1969, after a medal presentation for Silver Star action. From left: Del Sandusky, John Kerry, Gene Thorson, Thomas Belodeau. Kneeling from left, Mike Medeiros, Fred Short.

"In addition to Kerry's Silver Star PCF-94's performance on February 28 also earned Bronze Stars for Tommy Belodeau and Mike Medeiros and Navy Commendation Medals with Combat V Devices for Del Sandusky, Fred Short, and Gene Thorson." - Douglas Brinkley

I forgot to add ... that was apparently a very, very busy day! what with getting medals in the morning and medals in the afternoon (the Rassman episode)

I'm convinced that Kerry bought loyalty by giving out medals like they were hotcakes.
The reason Kerry is not in the purpleheart registry is that it requires a copy of your DD-214, and Kerry does not seem to want to release his records.
One last thing, upon returning from VN I served on DE-1038, the USS McCloy, named after John McCloy who earned 2 CMHs and 1 Navy Cross.
