Trying to find out why my dad had 2 purple hearts. He just passed 9 months ago. And when my mother got all the funeral arangements. She found out through the VA he had 2 P/H but could not find out why. Looking for anyone that could tell me more. My father was in Korea in 1950-53 and all I know that he did was work on planes. Dad never talked of Korea. His name is
