You haven't put an argument, you've put a question. 

I don't know anything about Kerry's war record but you
said "one", so here's an answer.

1) Purple heart (first injury).
2) Bronze star
3) Purple heart (second injury)
4) Silver star
5) Purple heart (third injury and trip home).

That seems to answer your hypothetical question in the terms you
put it.  Perhaps you wanted to imply or state something else?
