I am curious because I have been told so many different things that I would like to have clarification on this. If someone could point me in the right direction I would gladly look the answer up myself. Also, stupid question, am I entitled to wear a combat patch for the 10th mountain division if the unit I was attached to was never fully deployed while I was in it.

The military has put many of us in hostile situations, but does not consider it war based on the politically correct answers. What soldiers are saying about Korea, (including me 86-87), is that war is alway imminent there. The pucker factor is real. When you get told Kim Jon Un is coming across the DMZ at any moment, it’s all out caps. Yes, I had some good times there. But every time I went on duty at the “Turtle Farm” AKA Camp Casey, it was on. By the way, for you brave scholars out there, the Korean War is not over, only an Armistice Agreement is in place. All of us who got out of that “Hell Hole” after 365 days are blessed. Oh by the way, I did not serve for a combat patch or chest full of medals, I just served.
Keep trying I received my CIB and was'nt even looking for it, I mean I submitted the paper work to the army and buddy statements that proved wHat we did really happened but there must have been some evidence in my 201 file because initially they denied me so I gave up and then after years I receive it in the mail? go figure but that's the army.
