My grandfather received a purple heart for being wounded in Korean War and I need to put him correct category.

I added a link to a news article. Looking for his unit name so we can create that category.

Really Nice Bio! My grandfather was also in Korea and wounded by a grenade as he was a machine gunner in the army and he had the scars. Korea had its casualties so thankful one of those wasn’t my grandfather! I’m still researching his military records. See him here Rev. James Elwood Gibbs Sr (1929 - 2003)

Good work Natalie yes

Great profile!

I added the Purple Heart sticker to his profile.

Please feel free to remove it if you don't want it.

From looking at the profile, it looks like you've already added the Wounded in Action, Korean War and Purple Heart categories.

Yes but it says its in wrong category.
Sorry - I didn't catch that. So apparently you received an error on his profile and you're trying to resolve. I'm assuming the error said that the Wounded in Action category is incorrect and you'd like to fix it. Hopefully I'm capturing that correctly.

From what I can tell, the next level down is acceptable. That one is: Category: Wounded in Action, United States of America, Korean War

As Natalie mentioned, if the Categorization Team adds his unit, you can then change it to the Unit category instead, but I think at this time there's no subcategories under Wounded in Action, so this would be the best choice. My guess is that they might add his unit to the Units page, but that would be an additional category to add.
