Problems with Visconi’s Purple Heart

  1. The body of this document was composed using ITC Edwardian Script Regular Alternate which was not invented until 1994. It would have been impossible for Visconi to have received this document in 1969.
  2. There never has been a “Citation” for a Purple Heart. The Navy and Marine Corps Awards Manual specifies a one page Certificate(see page 2-16).
