Local veteran Earl “Red” Parris Sr. said that the country of Korea is offering medals for those that served there from 1950 through July 1953.
“Most people don’t even know that it is available,” Parris said.
The medal comes with a letter and a nice certificate. It takes about two months to get the medal because it has to go to the country of Korea. “It is a beautiful medal,” Parris said. For information about receiving the medal call Parris at 706-506-0401 and he will give the information and a number to call to talk with the woman that is over the process. They must have their DD214 form to get the medal.
