Trying to get my Purple heart

I am having difficulty finding out how to apply for and receive my Purple Heart for being wounded in Vietnam. Where can I go for help with this? Please help.

Re: Trying to get my Purple heart

The best way to do this is first to order a copy of your military records. They should show that you were medically treated for wounds while in Vietnam. If for some reason your records do not contain any information about being wounded then the next best step is to contact any members of your unit who were with you when you were wounded. They must agree to a write a certified letter explaining the details of what happened. Good luck and welcome home.
