I am submitting this for my Uncle Lawrence Bowling, who I never had a chance to meet.  He died Nov 5, 1950 in North Korea and received a Purple Heart.  My mother, Wanda loved her brother so much.  She said he was a good Christian boy and he always sent all his money home to his parents who were very poor.  (He only had $1.45 in his personal affects.) He was in love with a woman who was a teacher, but never had a chance to return home to her.  He was very handsome and loved very much by his family.  When my mom died in 2002 I know she was welcomed home by Uncle Lawrence, her big brother.
