Purple Heart Recipients Endorse Frank Schmuck
The Purple Heart is a United States military decoration awarded in the name of the president to those wounded or killed while serving, with the U.S. military. The Purple Heart is the oldest military award still given to U.S. military members and was established by President George Washington.
Frank Schmuck has distinguished himself as a veteran who cares about other veterans, exemplifies the words "service before self," and has been willing to risk his life to do so. Frank took on the fight to secure benefits, compensation and care for veterans diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.
