Friendly Fire Victims now eligible for the Purple Heart Medal
During the Vietnam War over thirty percent of US injuries and
fatalities were caused by friendly fire... Americans firing on other
Americans. During the Gulf Campaign, over fifty percent of US
casualties were caused by friendly fire.
To recognize these injured and dead Americans the Purple Heart can now
be issued either to the victim or to a member of his/her family.
