    Well, I completed a form 180 to get my military records and was very surprised by what I discovered.

    More than half my awards were not listed (including my CIB and EIB) and I was told I was not authorized the KDSM (Korea Defense Service Medal) because they have no record of me having served in Korea during the period of 1953 to Present (I was in Korea three years from 1986-1989).

    I guess the point of this post is to let you vets know you better check your records. Thankfully, I have my original DD214 with all my CORRECT info on it, so I can dispute this and get it all straightened out. If I didn't, I might just find myself up that proverbial creek.

    If you haven't sent in a form 180 and requested your records for a while, you might want to just to make sure your service records are accurate. You never know......
