I don't know the answer to this question but did military personnel in uniform at the WTC or the Pentagon on 9/11 get Purple Hearts? If so, then I think you may have a point. If not then those at Ft. Hood shouldn't get them either.

Good point. I would argue that military personnel killed or wounded during 9/11 should receive Purple Hearts as well, given that they were attacked by enemy combatants.

What was the situation in your case?
