Korean War Vets Entitled to Medals


Clark, Mike, The Florida Times Union


Byline: Mike Clark, Times-Union Reader Advocate

Dear Call Box: I am a veteran of the Korean War. I heard about the existence of a Korean War Medal. I talked to six different people in the Veterans Administration, and none of them knew about it. Can you find out if it exists and how people qualify for it? -- E.G., Arlington

Dear E.G. There are several medals, reported a Defense Department spokesman:

-- Korean Service Medal (service from June 27, 1950, to July 27, 1954).

-- Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal (Oct. 22, 1966-June 30, 1974).

-- National Defense Service Medal (June 27, 1950-July 27, 1954; Jan. 1, 1961-Aug. 14, 1974; Aug. 2, 1990-Nov. 30, 1995).

To find out if you qualify, write the National Personnel Records Center (Military), 9700 Page Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63172.

Did you know? More than 37,000 Americans died in the Korean War between 1950 and 1953. And nearly the same number of Americans stand guard in South Korea today. The phrase "freedom is not free" is part of the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington. Source: U.S. Defense Department.

Dear Call Box: Where do I dispose of an old propane gas tank? -- M.H., Baldwin

Dear M.H. You may take your propane gas tank to Jacksonville's hazardous waste facility at 2675 Commonwealth Ave.
