The following is an Anchorage KTUU Channel 2 story broadcast on TV by reporter tonight by Bill McAllister:

"ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- Three state lawmakers are proposing to designate an Alaska highway between Fairbanks and the Canadian border as part of the National Purple Heart Trail.

A bill pre-filed for the legislative session beginning Jan. 15 is intended to honor military servicemen and women who have been wounded in combat. Signs with the Purple Heart logo would be placed along the highway. The bill is being co-sponsored by Anchorage legislators Senator Johnny Ellis, Representatives Berta Gardner, and Bob Lynn."

The Purple Heart was established by General George Washington at Newburgh, New York, on 7 August 1782, during the Revolutionary War. It is awarded to military persons who have suffered wounds from armed conflict or terrorist attack. The Purple Heart one of the most respected of all military decorations.

"The Purple Heart one of the most respected of all military decorations."

If only all Republicans remembered that simple truth when they were off wearing Purple Heart band-aids at their 2004 convention.
