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.
