torily  the  duties  of  any such position. Upon such determination, the
said positions shall be classified in the noncompetitive class, and  may

ity in certification and referral of both  such  disabled  veterans  and
certified disabled but capable veterans shall be given to those veterans
who  received  a  wound  in combat, as documented by the awarding of the
purple heart, as authorized by the United States department of  defense,
