    Military Police in Korea

    Dan Murphy Newbie

      My uncle had a stroke. He is in hospital, and maybe not doing well. They cannot do MRI as they say there is metal in his head/brain. I am his nephew, so not direct relative. However, if you tell me what to do, I can forward info to his kids. If this helps, what I know is William Albert Murphy, Jr. Korean war, Military Police (from what I know, he mostly guarded the base). Please help (or tell us next steps) as to how to get some records either about the metal, or in general about what he did while there.

          Dan,

           

          Do you know or does the family know if he ever received care from the VA Hospital or ever filed a claim for service connected disabilities from his brain injury? If so, you may want to reach out to them to obtain his medical history as well.
