More detail on this person: I noticed you do not have this photo while doing research for our son Victor Adams who was born at Beach Army Hospital while Hank was in flight school. I am trying to gather info for our Son & Grandson that I can't remember or have lost over the years. My Father had all Hank's medals framed for him & they've been lost. I know Hank received a Purple Heart when he received shrapnel in his leg while flying and was in a hospital in Da Nang also a distinguished air medal: I believe awarded 11/68 near Chu Lai. Upon returning from Vietnam 2/69 we were at Ft Bragg where Hank completed his military service, he was a Capt. attached to Special Forces. If possible, could you please let me know who to contact for information on medals Hank received or any information about Hank's military career his Son & Grandson could have? Hank passed away 12/5/95 and I am just trying to get some memories for my Son to have.
