Chattanooga Shooting Declared Terrorist-Inspired, Purple Hearts Awarded
by Luis Martinez
The Navy will posthumously award Purple Hearts to the Sailor and four Marines killed in the Chattanooga mass shooting in July after both the FBI and Naval Criminal Investigative Service determined the attack was inspired by a foreign terror organization.
Another Marine injured in the attack will also receive the Purple Heart.
A lone gunman was responsible for the fatalities at the Navy Operational Support Center in Chattanooga as well as another attack at a military recruiting station.
