U.S. Army Says No Purple Hearts for Ft. Hood Victims


John Kerry got 3 of them. Maybe they should give some of his to them.
Check it out:

On March 29 the U.S. Army decided not to award Purple Heart medals to the victims of the 2009 Ft. Hood shooting, claiming that giving them medals would damage Major Nidal Hasan’s “ability to receive a fair trial.”

The Army issued a “position paper” in which it expressed concern that awarding the medal to the shooting victims “would set the stage for a formal declaration that Major Hasan is a terrorist.” And this is because the Purple Heart is awarded to those who have been “wounded or killed in any action against an enemy of the United States.”
