This is my grandpa's WW II purple heart that he got in germany,he also had a bronze star.
He was shot twice while there,at 2 different times. While recuperating they had him refueling trucks along the Autobahn(sp),and he was also the most decorated vet in our county.
Thanks for looking!

    I've been shot once and can't imagine how I would feel about going back where I might get shot again. I didn't like the first time!
