awarding of Korean War Service medals

The Ambassador of the Republic of Korea, Ahu Ho-Young came to East Hartford to present the Korean Medal of Gratitude to 100 Connecticut Korean War Veterans in our state who served in what has been called the ‘Forgotten War.’

The Ambassador said he prefers to call it the “Forgotten Victory” because though the war ended in a stalemate with the North, South Korea has a successful democracy, and he is grateful for the sacrifices made by Americans in the war.

The Ambassador, who created the medal, says they are made from melted down barbed wire separating North and South Korea.
