Re: Purple Heart number 463439
I have a list of Purple Heart numbers that can be traced, and yours is not on it. Very few GO's published during WWII actually listed the numbers. A researcher named Col. Al Gleim ( Who passed away, and we all miss him every day ) put together a lsit of numbers he had found at the archives but there are only maybe 5000 out of 420,000 known . Purple Hearts for WWII start in the high 70xxx range and go up to @ 500,000 . PH's numbered below 78,000 are mostly WWI.
