PFC Clark, hopefully you have other records to substantiate the service such as the purple heart? If you are trying to get the purple heart that can be difficult without medical records and witnesses. Same for heroism, you need several witnesses and statements. Korea itself has several awards to recognize American veterans who actually fought in Korea during the war there. They also sponsor trips to Korea. What medal are you seeking? When you answer the Qs we can move forward. A Congressman can definitely help. I've seen cases where a letter to the Chief of Staff or Service Secretary got things moving. Valid cases do get approved if supported by facts.
