Comments: I represent a veteran, Rudolph Green, who was injured in Korea while in the 153rd and taken to the 21st Medical Evacuation Hospital. Mr. Green drove a truck. He was caught in between two trucks while loading shells off a rail car on to the trucks and was injured. Does anyone know how I can prove this happened: morning reports or other unit records?
