Korean War veterans honored

June 19, 2013 

The Department of Defense 60th Anniversary of the Korean War Commemoration Committee has planned and executed several events for our Korean War veterans. One project honors veterans with a Certificate of Appreciation. Prairie Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution has presented 22 Certificates of Appreciation to Korean War veterans or a family member of deceased a Korean War veteran.

An upcoming event that will pay tribute to our Korean War veterans is Heroes Remembered: Korean War Armistice Day 2013 to be held on July 27, 2013 at Washington, D.C. This event will honor Korean War Veterans and families from around the country in a special ceremony honoring the 60th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.
