Description
The Purple Heart is awarded in the name of the president of the United States to members of the U.S. military who have been wounded or killed in action.

On May 5, 2011, in San Diego, California, the Postal Service™ issued a Purple Heart with Ribbon (Forever®) definitive stamp, in one design in a pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA). With the issuance of this “Purple Heart with Ribbon” stamp, the U.S. Postal Service® again honors the sacrifices of the men & women who serve in the U.S. military.

The new stamp, designed by Jennifer Arnold, Washington, DC, features a photograph taken by Ira Wexler, of the Purple Heart medal awarded during World War II to 1st Lieutenant Arthur J. Rubin (1917-1978). In 2003, the Postal Service issued its first Purple Heart stamp. It featured a photograph, also taken by Wexler, of a Purple Heart awarded to Lt. Colonel James Loftus Fowler (USMC) in 1968 following an action on the border between North and South Vietnam.

On August 7, 1782, during the Revolutionary War, General George Washington issued an order that established a badge of distinction for meritorious action. The badge, which consisted of a heart made of purple cloth, is known to have been awarded to three sergeants from Connecticut regiments. Known as the Badge of Military Merit, the award was distinctive because it was available to the lower ranks at a time when only officers were eligible for decoration in European armies. "The road to glory in a patriot army," Washington wrote, "is thus open to all."

Although not continued after the Revolutionary War, the decoration was reinstated by the U.S. War Department (now the Department of Defense) on February 22, 1932, the 200th anniversary of Washington's birth. The redesigned decoration consists of a purple heart of metal bordered by gold, suspended from a purple and white ribbon. In the center of the medal is a profile bust of George Washington beneath his family coat of arms.

My grandson was a preemie too. We stuffed the arms & legs of his snowsuit with his receiving blankets. He looked like a big marshmallow, lol! But he was warm!

I totally love this snowsuit. My granddaughter is small for her age and is 4 months-do you think I have a chance it would fit? Does it run true to size or a little bit bigger? If it is a bit bigger I have a chance!! And I would be SO happy. Thanks!

You are great! Thanks so much it sure does!!
debbiegardiner33 that is small but my full term daughter was 5 11oz and my granddaughter, also full term was 6ibs. Don't worry she will catch up quickly so my advise is- don't buy too many preemie clothes! Happy Holidays to all! And thanks again Kaye!

I REALLY think it is beautiful the way you have shown it. But I do know what you mean, it seems my photos never show the real beauty of the outfit either. I'll go check out your jewelry asap! Thanks again, be back tomorrow to bid!
