The Purple Heart: Honor Those Who Haven't sign now

We as Americans are a proud nation. We fight for what we believe in and some of us die for that idea. Throughout the history of the United States we have partook in numerous wars. Some not always victories, some bettered our country. Those people who fought for us were given medals and recognized as heroes. Those that were wounded in battle are given purple hearts. Those that die in battle, their family is given a purple heart. But those who die in a forward area, by a sneak attack are not given the purple heart.

The reason why I right this is personal. My uncle fought in Vietnam. He was on the front lines leading men and saving them. While going through the jungle, his troop was snuck up upon and without a shot being fired from the American troop and was wiped out. Because he wasn't able to fight back, the purple heart was not awarded to him. Because of this we are not allowed to honor him in the Purple Heart Memorial recently opened.

This is a petition to honor those that have fallen, and weren't awarded the purple heart. If someone is sent to a forward area, they have just as much claim.

Please, try to chnge this injustice, not only for me, but for the entire troop, and for hundreds of families in this great nation. Thank you.
