Purple Heart Michigan

Twelve year veteran Jason Wright and has wife Amy, of Allegan County, Michigan, found the shock of a lifetime recently when they discovered two crumpled up bubble mailers lying on the floor after being stuffed through their front door mailbox. Inside the crudely presented manila envelopes were ten military service awards, including TWO purple hearts.


Michigan's Tom Harmon won a purple heart and a Silver Star in the US Army. He enlisted in the Army Air Corps in 1941.


A big thank you from all true patriots to our servicemen and women who have earned these protecting our freedom. We can never repay you but we will always support you and keep you in our prayers. God bless you!
