All,

After about six weeks of being down because of AOL droping their web hosting service, I have finally revamped and uploaded my Purple Heart web page. Its still under construction and will undergo some changes but I hope that you will check it out and let me know what you think.

It's new location is:

Thanks,
Ed Maier

Thanks for your site Tom!

Picked up my first WWII #'d Purple Heart today and your site was extremely helpful in determining exactly what I had!

Tom,
First of all, thanks for the website. It has given me a bunch of information that I have thoroughly enjoyed. A question that you or someone else may answer. My uncle, a Korea Marine, had a PH with the ribbon, from broach to pendant, longer than those awarded to Army guys.

Other than the obvious that the medals were manufactured by different contractors, is there a rhyme or reason for this difference?

Thanks,

Hi Tom,
I have just recently gotten into U.S. awards with the Purple Heart as the main addiction.
I want to thank you for the hard work you have done on this site to provide a newbie like me
a wealth of information on named, numbered and faked Purple Hearts. This information will save me
a whole lot of time and money as a good bit of information is on your site.
I know you have said it is a labor of love and I can understand that, but I really think
you deserve the recognition and appreciation for your hard work and dedication that I won't have to do
because you have done a lot of it for me.
So Thank you very much
Dave

Hi Ed,
I was going to start collecting Purple Hearts, but it looks as though you got 'em all. Oh well, back to collecting Iron Crosses. Seriously though great site and completely amazing collection. :drool2: I can only dream of something that sweet.
My compliments. :salute:

"Basically if the enemy didn't cause the wound or injury, you're not eligible."
The enemy was involved...

TITLE 10 > Subtitle A > PART II > CHAPTER 57 > § 1129
§ 1129. Purple Heart: members killed or wounded in action by friendly fire
(a) For purposes of the award of the Purple Heart, the Secretary concerned shall treat a member of the armed forces described in subsection (B) in the same manner as a member who is killed or wounded in action as the result of an act of an enemy of the United States.
(B) A member described in this subsection is a member who is killed or wounded in action by weapon fire while directly engaged in armed conflict, other than as the result of an act of an enemy of the United States, unless (in the case of a wound) the wound is the result of willful misconduct of the member.
© This section applies to members of the armed forces who are killed or wounded on or after December 7, 1941. In the case of a member killed or wounded as described in subsection (B) on or after December 7, 1941, and before November 30, 1993, the Secretary concerned shall award the Purple Heart under subsection (a) in each case which is known to the Secretary before such date or for which an application is made to the Secretary in such manner as the Secretary requires.
