Hi John, 
In the military, "injured" usually means a non combat injury like from an accident. If your father was in combat, he would have been listed as "wounded" (WIA). 
Cheers, Mike

Subject: [KS] Father in Korean War 

Hi Folks, 

I posted this question a while back, but have more information now, perhaps someone could point me in the right direction: 

My father was injured in the Korean War in late August, early September 1952.  He was with the USMC, Korea "E" Company, 2nd Battalion, 1st Reg., 1st Division. 

Since I live in Seoul, I would like to find out where he was injured, or details of the battle. He received 2 Purple Hearts, because he was hit again while being carried off the battlefield. 

Thanks in advance,
