Hallo! My uncle served in US navy from 1949-1951. (Yes in USA armed forces!) He was son of my Scottish grandfather and born in LA. He served in a destroyer during shore bombardement and was wounded by North Korean anti-aircraft guns... His lung was pierced and he agonised for six months. He is now 75 and lives quite fine thanks to his Navy cheques... I wonder why did he not receive his Purple Heart if they were awarded for wounds? Was it because he was not an american citizen? I will post here more information about him, like in which exact ship did he serve and where was he wounded.
