During World War II, nearly 500,000 Purple Heart medals were manufactured in anticipation of the estimated casualties resulting from the planned Allied invasion of Japan. To the present date, total combined American military casualties of the sixty-five years following the end of World War II—including the Korean and Vietnam Wars—have not exceeded that number. In 2003, there remained 120,000 Purple Heart medals in stock. The existing surplus allowed combat units in Iraq and Afghanistan to keep Purple Hearts on-hand for immediate award to soldiers wounded in the field.
And the Church being the original Commie/Antisemitic cult that truly spawned it all as history clearly shows...

A no brainer NCO solution,
If the Founding Fathers could sign away their live with this clause than it should be good far any Patriot.
“we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”
I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
End it with So…
I Pledge to My Country My Life, My Fortune, and My Sacred Honor
You have his life, money and reputation on the line.
Excellent idea. The name, battlefield and year reminds us what we fight for and that the line is unbroken.

Thanks for your Service, I hope you win.
Wow I should have put these two together dancing and war injury recovery.
Reminds me of the WWII RAF Ace Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader:CBE, DSOw/Bar,DFCw/Bar, and his book “Reach For The Sky”. He loses both legs in AC accident pre WWII and uses dancing along with physical therapy to recovery (he promised his wife he would learn to dance but then the accident happened). He went on to be one of the best pilots in the RAF. He could take more G’s with no legs.
Hollywood a great movie, opening scene a Spitfire on a low pass dropping artificial legs to a German Staff car. Read the book you will understand.
The Wounded Warrior Project and the Warrior Transition Bn need to look at Dancing as a path to recovery as it develops agility, spatial awareness, while rewiring the brain to route around the injury.
When my cousin was hospitalized after the Beirut bombing, his first doctor told him he “might as well just accept that (he’d) never walk again” He told the doc what he was full of and got another doc assigned to his case.
By golly, nearly three years later, he walked out of that hospital on his own two feet.
He told me that Douglas Bader was the inspiration he needed to get back on his feet and beat his injuries. I guess it worked, ’cause there’s no slowing him down now!

This ties right into False information, Gun Rights, our Government and a former CBS reporter.
If the Founding Fathers could see what these Proglodytes have done and are doing to the United States, I believe they would have been the first to build the gallows for these traitors.
@DeOppressoLiber. Voter fraud is a myth, right? Ha,ha,ha. Corruption abounds and the constitution is arse wipe in the obama admin.
Lot family, move NOW from these 14 states!
I live in Washington and the east side of the state is out numbered by the west. We can't win here.
Actually not progressive strongholds in totality. It's the I-5 corridor liberals who control Oregon and Washington. Seattle and Portland decide the vote...the rural parts of both states are conservative in nature and vote.
