Honoring Korean War Veterans

July 24, 2017

In July of 1998, 45 years after signing the treaty that ended the Korean War, President Clinton proclaimed July 27 National Korean War Veterans Armistice Day. This day honors those who served in Korea and those who lost their lives during the war. Since then Veterans have celebrated this day across the country with memorial services and by laying wreaths at the Korean War Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC and other monuments throughout our Nation. Prior to the end of World War II, Korea was controlled by Japan. In August 1945, the Soviet Union declared war on Japan and liberated Korea north of the 38th parallel.
