Warrior's Heart (Homeland Heroes #2) by Donna Fleisher
For thousands of years my people defended our territory, battling disease, starvation, genocide, and forced colonization. That warrior culture still exists today. Despite the oppression experienced by Native Americans at the hands of U. Today, Native Americans serve in the U. Stationed in the Pacific, DesRosier returned from overseas in , and has since obtained degrees in anthropology and Native American studies from the University of Montana.
He is now teaching at the same Blackfoot-language immersion school he and his brother, also a veteran, attended nearly 20 years ago - the Cuts Wood School, a program under the Piegan Institute, the brainchild of the late Darrell Kipp, whose son Darren now runs the school.
So, he began skipping classes at the public school in order to attend Cuts Wood covertly. Finally, Darren Kipp broadened the program to its current format, an accredited full-time K-8 institution that stands out as a model for native language schools across the country. The notion of revitalizing a language that had been successfully demonized was met with hostility after a century of conditioning by public and religious institutions. Leading a visitor on the tour of the Cuts Wood School, Darren Kipp likens it to a temple housing something sacred - the east-facing doors reveal a traditional Native pedagogy relating to the placement of tipi poles, pointing in the direction of the rising sun.
Prior to , service departments would review all available records, including older service records, and service histories, to determine if a veteran warranted a retroactive Purple Heart.

As of , such records are listed as "Archival", by the National Archives and Records Administration, meaning they have been transferred from the custody of the military, and can no longer be loaned and transferred for retroactive medals determination. In such cases, requestors asking for a Purple Heart especially from records of the First World War are provided with a complete copy of all available records or reconstructed records in the case of the fire and advised the Purple Heart may be privately purchased if the requestor feels it is warranted. A clause to the archival procedures was revised in mid, where if a veteran, or, if deceased, an immediate member of the family, requested the Purple Heart, on an Army or Air Force record, the medal could still be granted by the National Archives.
In such cases, where a determination was required made by the military service department, photocopies of the archival record, but not the record itself , would be forwarded to the headquarters of the military branch in question. This stipulation was granted only for the Air Force and Army; Marine Corps, Navy, and Coast Guard archival medals requests are still typically only offered a copy of the file and told to purchase the medal privately.
For requests directly received from veterans, these are routed through a Navy Liaison Office, on site at Page Avenue, St. Due to the National Archives Fire , a large number of retroactive Purple Heart requests are difficult to verify because all records to substantiate the award may have been destroyed. As a solution to deal with Purple Heart requests, where service records were destroyed in the fire, the National Personnel Records Center maintains a separate office.
If a Purple Heart is warranted, all available alternate records sources are forwarded to the military service department for final determination of issuance. The loaning of fire related records to the military has declined since because a large number of such records now fall into the "archival records" category of military service records. This means the records were transferred from the military to the National Archives, and in such cases, the Purple Heart may be privately purchased by the requestor see above section of retroactive requests for further details but is no longer provided by the military service department.
