Ernest H. Wright March 4, 2015

Purple Hearts Reunited received Ernest H. Wright’s lost Purple Heart from a woman in New York. The veteran had no known relation to this woman’s family, but was somehow acquired over the years.

The medal is a Type 1A (1932-1940), WWI-era Purple Heart, with the serial number “32823.” There were several men with the name of E.H. Wright who served in World War I. Happy hunting!
