In 1951 the country of South Korea design a medal and ribbon for the service men defending that country from an attach by North Korea and China. The Department of Defence would not approve the medal for the armed forces of the United States. Maybe, because President Truman signed Executive Order 10179 authorizing the Korean Service Medal, issued by the United State, the Republic Of South Korea had to delay the ROK Korean War Service Medal. So here we are over fifty years later receiving a War Medal for COMBAT. If you qualify for one of these medals, you qualify for both of them. The person serving in Korea can apply, or either; his wife, Parents, Children and Grandchildren are all authorize to receive the Medal.This is a very impressive “thank-you Ribbon and Medal” (above) with a Thank-you letter in both English and Korean. For this reason, it’s best to apply early. Under “Links” click on “Stand In The Door”, there you will see the Ribbon, Medal and Letters from the Republic of South Korea. Then click on U.S. Air Force to get information to apply for the Medal.

    “Better late than never” is my exact feeling because the medals are for my grandchildren anyway, a little history about “granddad.”
    It seems we experience the same delay in getting awards, benefits and service from the governments ruling our countries, so your comment alerted me to speed up my plan to compare the military benefits and service in the countries to the North and South of the United States starting next year. Maybe you can give me a good starting point and a source that is legal and available?
