WHAT BATTLES OR HILLS WAS MY DAD INVOLVED WITH?

Comments: My father was in Korea from approx 2/52 to 6/53 with 3rd ID company C/HQ 15th Inf Regiment. He never really spoke to much about Korea other than how cold it was over there and things were rather tough. He recently passed away and I found a bronze star order that was awarded after he left Korea.

He did tell me that he was wounded in early 1952 and shipped to Japan. I can't find the order for this purple heart or his 1st CIB. When he was shipped back he was assigned to drive for Maj John D. Eisenhower until leaving Korea. This was around Oct. 1952

Can someone provide information on battles or hills he might have been involved with? (i.e Outpost Harry, etc) Since his DD214 is not accurate and this information was destroyed in the fire is their other information or way to get the purple heart and CIB.

He also served in Vietnam in 25th ID where he was wounded and medically retired.

the awards that he deserve for being at the front line were he sustianed
a injury to his head during incoming enemy fire.

DOD only shows him at the first phase of induction to the 296 infantry,
but strangely enough they do not show any records of him being in the
3rd division 15 regiment at Kelly Hill. Ofcourse like many of our
soldiers from that era he has been turn down for medals, pensions, Etc
only because DOD has lost his medical records which would prove that
he was wounded in combat. My father is in his final days, I refuse to
see him go without recognition of his sacrifice to this nation. Please
contact us with any info that might help him.

Comments: I previously posted on this site in an attempt to obtain medals that were never received by my late grandfather, Ken Lockard. Thanks to all the help I received, the medals are on their way. Thank you.

I am interested to know if anyone remembers him. He served in Company E, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division as a squad leader. He received a silver star for the mission at outpost on the evening on June 10, 1953 into the early a.m. of June 11. He was from Sparta, Michigan. Please contact me if you can provide any additional information. Thank you!
Tracey
