Got knocked out due to concussion blast. Woke up with blood coming out of right ear. Where is my Purple Heart and Silver Star I was promised?

If it is documented somewhere in your records yoiu should be able to fight to get them. If not, then you are going to have a tough row to hoe.
Use your state congressional reps to help fight for what you deserve.

med records is going to be your best bet, and if your lucky to have a statement from somebody who was there also, even better. question though....... if you don"t mind me asking, why did"nt you ask the chain of command about it before you got out? i know you probably got the run around about it. was just wondering.
