    Although your report equates the Purple Heart with being wounded, I suspect that the number of combat wounded alone is greater than the 671,000. My undying gratitude goes out to all who fought in Europe as I was liberated by the Canucks in ’45 on a beautiful spring day. Incidentally, I know that in Vietnam, many wounded did not receive the Purple Heart.
