    I don't have to read the article to know, that if he had orders authorizing him to wear the award, he could have taken those orders to his unit and they would have issued him the decoration.

    I wonder why he didn't do that? I bet there's way more to this story than what we're being told.
    from the article in the OP
    A Purple Heart should have been easy to obtain. But because Dickerson was serving alongside Iraqi soldiers instead of American forces, no U.S. Army medic was able to issue him a Casualty Feeder Card, a document that "goes up the chain of command and notifies them of American casualties," he said.

    "Being with Iraqi soldiers, I had no American medic with me -- and all of my Iraqi comrades with me were killed."
    I may be wrong.

    Good Lord. I can't even begin to think of how to respond to an inane statement such as this. For the love of all things pure, please turn down right wing radio. It will rot your brain.

    I suggested that he actually read the article, but of course he knew everything. lol

    IOW, there may have been no one to verify that he was wounded by direct enemy action?

    Believe it, or not, that isn't all that outrageous.

    Outrageous or not, NOTHING justifies him having to pay that C.O.D.
