In a very special ceremony Friday, December 13, a group of 18 surviving veterans of the Korean War were each personally presented with an “Ambassador for Peace” medal by Kim Wan-Joong, Consulate General of the Republic of Korea. Accompanying each award was an official proclamation, which expressed gratitude from the Republic of Korea for the sacrifices and dedicated contributions those recognized made in helping the country reestablish as a free nation, more than half a century ago.
