The Purple Heart should be awarded ONLY to American Armed Forces personnel who are wounded by enemy action in a formally recognized COMBAT ZONE. The last time I checked, no region of the U.S.A. has been declared to be a combat zone. Military personnel injured in a combat zone by accident, by friendly fire for example, do not qualify. Likewise, CIVILIANS (e.g., the press) injured in a combat zone, even if by enemy action, do not qualify. Let us not water down the significance of the Purple Heart by awarding it willy-nilly to someone, military or otherwise, who is injured by an alleged terrorist anywhere on the planet.
