In the Army

Swartz Creek, Michigan

My dad was in the Army, and served in the Korean war. He was wounded but never got his Purple Heart. His records were lost in a big fire in Missouri 40 years ago,
and so they've refused to give him his medal. I had always hoped he would get it before he dies. He's 81 and time is running out.

Sometimes the VA sucks.

That's really sad what the Army has done. As you know I was in the military once so I know how they work.
