Purple Hearts or "Get Well Soon" Cards?

For the dead at Fort Hood, killed by a jihadist agent in time of war, their lives fully spent, military honors are all that remain.
Will they and their wounded comrades receive those honors or will they suffer one more sacrifice, one more indignity in the name of political correctness?

Each of them deserves the Purple Heart, which is usually awarded nearly immediately after suffering a combat wound.

We'll learn much about the Army, the Department of Defense and the administration in this time of Obama by how long it takes to award the medals.

My own betting is that it will take some future President to correct the wrong done by this President, in this matter as well as so many others.
