Did you know?

The National Purple Heart Hall of Honor opens in November.

The hall is being built at a historic site north of New York City where George Washington's army camped toward the end of the Revolutionary War. It was there in 1782 that Washington created the Badge of Military Merit, which he decreed would be "the figure of a heart in purple cloth."

The badge fell into disuse after the war, but was reintroduced as the Purple Heart in 1932. Thousands of World War I veterans received Purple Hearts retroactively -- as did a few very old Civil War veterans.

In 1942, Purple Hearts were restricted to those "wounded in action against any enemy."

Take it slow and keep your head up. That way you can see the bullshit coming.
And don’t waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren’t. So there!
