Vietnam Wound Medal


Vietnam Wound Medal


Vietnam Wound Medal was a military decoration of South Vietnam. The decoration was the South Vietnamese equivalent of the USA Purple Heart, and was awarded to any personnel of the South Vietnamese military who, while engaged in armed combat with enemies of the Republic of Vietnam, were either killed or wounded in action. The decoration was seldom bestowed upon members of allied military and then only if the allied soldier in question was attached and under the direct command of a South Vietnamese unit. For service members of the United States military, the Vietnam Wound Medal is not authorized for wear on a military uniform as it is the foreign equivalent to of the Purple Heart medal.
