In 1941, the U.S. Army requested a vehicle — and drove off in a hero. The Purple Heart medal is awarded for meritorious achievement or service as well as wounds received as a result of enemy action in a theater of combat.
In 1943, the Marine Corps actually awarded a Purple Heart to a heroic Jeep® 4x4 vehicle named “Old Faithful” for meritorious valor and duty in combat during World War II.
