Purple Heart KIA KOREA

Recommended Posts


I recently have found a Purple Heart awarded to GURFEIN, LEON. With some internet research I could find out a little bit.


I was wondering if someone could help me with a picture of this soldier.

Since I am not specialized in US awards I would like to know where I can found out more. For example, was he awarded more then only this Purple Heart. Where can I find this information.

Sincerely, Werner

He would've at the very minimum received the Korean Service Campaign Medal, the UN Medal for action in Korea, and the National Defense Service Medal.

Thank you Paul.

I would like to find out more about this person. Is there a possibility to find a copy of his personal military record ?

I have already found the following insigna on the internet. Now I am looking for some original period ones.

hopefully I can make a reconstruction of the medals awarded to Mr Gurfein. Any help would be welcome ☺️
