And if you're in a combat zone, perhaps you'd get a Purple Heart. True story as related in Reader's Digest Humor in Uniform section: An Army cook in Vietnam got an egg shell fragment in his eye while making scrambled eggs. The albumin stuck it to his eyeball so he had to see the unit medic to get it removed. Some time later, he was notified that he was receiving a Purple Heart. The reason cited was "shell fragment in eye." Apparently, someone was just glancing through through the undoubtedly numerous medical treatment records to discern who to present the medals to and found his record with its deceptive entry.
