Sacrifice Remembered: Posthumous Awards of the Purple Heart in WWII

A military medal is simply a piece of metal attached to a colored piece of cloth. Its significance is much more important. A medal is tangible proof of someone’s courage – sometimes at the cost of their life. David Schwind will examine the posthumous awarding of the Purple Heart, our Nation’s oldest award, and some of the recipients of the award who “gave their all” during WWII.

David Schwind is a U.S. Navy officer and has served in Japan, Maryland, and Virginia. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Regents College, SUNY, and holds master’s degrees from the Naval Postgraduate School and Naval War College.
