Purple Hearts

The fighting on Hill 260 led to many awards for bravery and injury suffered in action. In April, a number of awards were bestowed on soldiers of the 182nd Infantry. Here (L-R) Edward Monahan, William Joyce, and Daniel Ramsey pose in the company area with their newly pinned Purple Hearts. Note that this improved camp area features wooden structures, tables, even a sign looking like a barbar pole, a vast improvement over the primitive living conditions when the unit first arrived.

The Battle on Hill 260 details can be found on the 182nd Infantry website.
