How many purple heart recipients are from Arkansas?

The "History" section of the November 2009 edition of National Geographic estimated the number of purple hearts given. Above the estimates, the text reads, "Any tally of Purple Hearts is an estimate. Awards are often given during conflict; records aren't always exact" (page 33). The estimates are as follows:

"History: Purple Hearts". National Geographic (November 2008): 33.

If winners are generally evenly distributed across all 50 states, it is safe to assume that well in excess of 35,000 recipients are from Arkansas, though the exact number is impossible to know.
