Murtha's "requesting" PH's is BS!
Anyone who served in combat knows that PH's are awarded at the time of the injury based on whether the person received the injury while in combat. Not, days, weeks, months, years later!!! We covered this in detail with the Traitor Kerry.
This sounds too much like Kerry's BS!
And I take offense to ANYONE "requesting" a Purple Heart! PERIOD
Purple Heart commendations aren't Boy Scout merit badges.
They are not "requested"; they are EARNED and AWARDED at the time of injury.
My dad suffered all his life from wounds he recieved during WW2, and he got 2 purple hearts. The way these cretins obtained their awards is beginning to diminish the significance of the honor. I say make him prove it!
Agreed in principle...and I used to think so. But then along came John F. Kerry.
