    I just remembered. It was a merit and wound from 1932 until the early part of WW 2. At that point, it became a wound only award.

    WTHeck is wrong with our government that they would make a valiant warrior and their family wait this long. Aggravates the snot out of me. Thank you brave warrior, thank you!!!

    In WW 1 you got a wound chevron. In 1932, the PH was changed from a merit award to a wound award. WW1 vets could apply for the PH to replace the wound chevron. Many did and many did not.
    I expect this was the case here and it was finally applied for.

    "Gardner, 85, was giddy over the long-overdue honor and said she wished her father could have received it himself."

    Amen! Thank you Mrs. Gardner for your father's service and your honoring of him.
