    I glad for this. My uncle served over there, but the gov't didn't want anybody knowing there was still fighting over there, so my Uncle's two wounds (both worse than any Kerry wound) were classified as 'accidents' and no Purple Heart was given to him. At least now he'll have something for what he did.

    On a side note, Korea during that time period drove people crazy. My uncle spent two years being shot at without authority to shoot back, and it was several years before he recovered from that. Until then, his attitude was, "I'm not taking any crap from anybody for anything."
