    just got back from my local antique mall and picked up this grouping...I don't have a Purple Heart in my collection and this grouping looked interesting. includes a rank insignia, front layer of the award box peeled off and a typed note...can't speak to the provenance but everything looks period to me....I will definitely dive into the personal story side and research but I am just sharing with the group in case anyone has any added insight....thanks for looking
