A Purple Heart That Was Being Sold For $4.99 Was Returned To Its Rightful Place

While Laura Hardy was shopping at a Mesa, AZ, Goodwill, they came across a Purple Heart that was earned during WWII. Shocked to see such a treasure being sold for $4.99, they decided to purchase it and return it to its rightful place.

“It was just classified as purple jewelry for $4.99,” said Hardy, who purchased the medal. “They just rang it up … no comment from the people at the register or anywhere.”

Hardy posted a picture of it on Facebook, asking people to share in order to find the family of the Purple Heart’s owner. The Purple Heart belonged to a Eual H. Whiteman.
