Hello all, My father-in-law is a WWII combat vet who participated in the re-taking of the Philippines. He possesses a Purple Heart awarded to him however his WD AGO 53 - 55 does not reflect the award in box 33 for awards and decorations, however in box 34 "Wounds Received In Action" there is the entry "AP JUN 1944". As a retired member of the USAF I am somewhat familiar with U.S. awards and decs and I know that any wound received from enemy action should trigger the award of the Purple Heart. Would the omission of the decoration in box 33 be a clerical error? Should we request a correction to his WD AGO 53 - 55? Looking for any informed opinions. Thanks all.
