    Looking for records of Marines WIA in Korean War

    Newbie

      Husband was WIA on 10 Aug 1950 in South Korea and WIA on 7 Dec 1950 near Choisen area. I have tried to access records from Ancestry.com, but the request always times out.  My husband talked about being in a jeep and ambushed, shot in the leg and two fellow Marines dragged him through the rice paddies back to a field hospital.  He had a place on his chest that looking like a bullet entry with a scar on his back, but he told me it was not a wound and he was only wounded once.  His DD-214 listed him as being wounded twice, but I did not have that available until recently.
