Korean War veterans sought for May medal ceremony

Albert J. Hamilton American Legion Post 7 will host the South Korean Consulate and members of the Korean community for a ceremony presenting the Korean Ambassador of Freedom Medal to U.S. veterans who served in Korea during the Korean War. The post is trying to locate local Korean War veterans so they can be included in the ceremony.

The ceremony will be from noon to 4 p.m. May 30 at the post, 1688 W. Bakerview Road, with a free lunch for veterans and their family members. Korean War veterans, or people with information about them, should call Al Jensen at 360-384-5419 by the first week of May.
