This whole article is FAKE NEWS and one big lie! A friend of mine contacted the family and they confirmed that they are holding both the MOH and the Purple Heart medals. The article also mentions that Ltc Cole's son Bruce passed away, well, let me assure you that he has not. Seems like someone felt it necessary to create a fake Purple Heart medal with Cole's name on it to increase its value and/or the attention level. These people probably do not realize how they are hurting the family's feelings (or they simple don't care). And its amazing that no-one has done any fact checking before releasing the article. So much for decent journalism.
