This was my Great Uncle Paul. He was my Grandfather Lee's brother. I do not remember ever meeting Paul but I did see pictures from my Grandparents visits to see him in Oklahoma. I know that he loved Dobermans. He had one that my Grandpa told me was spoiled rotten. It ate food that was cooked by Paul.

Purple Heart
The General, ever desirous to cherish virtuous ambition in his soldiers as well as foster and encourage every species of military merit, directs that whenever any singularly meritorious action is performed, the author of it shall be permitted to wear on his facings, over his left breast, the figure of a heart in purple cloth or silk edged with narrow lace or binding. Not only instances of unusual gallantry but also of extraordinary fidelity and essential service in any way shall meet with due reward. The name and regiment of the persons so certified are to be enrolled in a Book of Merit which shall be kept in the orderly room." The order further states: "Men who have merited this distinction to be suffered to pass all guards and sentinels which officers are permitted to do. The order to be retroactive to the earliest stages of the war, and to be a permanent one." Washington ended his order with: "The road to glory in a patriot army and a free country is thus open to all."

General George Washington
