I have added the following categories to the profile of Justen-90, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Justen-90

Three of the seven categories are highlighted in red ? Can this be corrected ? Awarded: Purple Heart, Combat Infantryman's Badge, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Korean Presidential Unit Citation and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal. Highlighted in red : [[Category: Combat Infantryman's Badge]] [[Category: United Nations Service Medal]][[Category: Korean Presidential Unit Citation]]

If you use the following categories it will make these medals black and not red.

Category: Republic of Korea Presidential Unit Citation

Category: United Nations Service Medal Korea

I also did a search on Fold3 and found the information on the date he was listed as missing in action (12 Feb 1951) and disposition date (31 Dec 1953). The following was listed as a comment

"Corporal Justen was a member of Company C, 1st Battalion, 9th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Infantry Division. He was listed as Missing in Action while fighting the enemy in South Korea on 12 Feb 1951. He was presumed dead on 31 Dec 1953. Corporal Justen was awarded the Purple Heart, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Presidential Unit Citation, and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal."

Hope this helps you with your further research.

This answers the question asked very well.  However, I  have a couple comments.  The individual is recorded as a "Notable".  Dying in battle doesn't make someone Notable.  However it is worthy of inclusion on the Roll of Honor.  Here's a link to that project.  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Project:Roll_of_Honor

Maybe check spacings, sometimes an extra “space” plays havoc with your work.

I took a look, and then searched for the category, and it appears that those highlighted categories do not yet exist. I suggest waiting until someone from the Military and War project sees this post, because the Military and War category tree is quite complicated and they will be able to create the categories where they are supposed to go.
