Who was awarded Purple hearts in Vietnam?

Any soldier who is injured during combat as a direct result of something the enemy did is awarded the Purple Heart. In other words, someone who was crossing the street in Vietnam and hit by a car, or someone who contracted Malaria wouldn't get a Purple Heart. Someone hit by shrapnel from an exploding grenade or rocket, or someone hit by an enemy bullet, or someone injured or killed in a helicopter crash when the crash was caused by the enemy would get a purple heart. If the helicopter crashed for mechanical reasons, the award would probably not be made. If a person was hit by 'friendly fire' from our own units, they would not be awarded the Purple Heart.
