    Searching for Purple Heart Information

    Joe Heinrich Wayfarer

      I recently discovered a gold star Purple Heart lapel pin in my deceased mother's keepsakes.  The initials on the back are CM, which coincides with her brother Charles Mehegan (b. 1937) who served in the Army and was in Viet Nam.  I remember hearing many years ago that he was shot (and survived).  Unfortunately, he is in very poor health and his wife has Alzheimer's.  His immediate family has no specific knowledge of the medal.  How can I find  the details about his Purple Heart?  Thank you!
