The 2022 Korean War Veterans Tribute and Speaker Forum has been rescheduled to Saturday, Dec. 3, instead of Sept. 10.

The luncheon will be at 11 a.m.; program at 12 p.m.. The dress code is business casual and dressy aloha attire.

The program will include a panel of four Korean War veterans who will share their experiences during the conflict, as well as presentation of the Ambassador for Peace Medal to Korean War veterans by the consul general of Korea.

The Embassy of the Republic of South Korea is seeking Korean War veterans to honor with the medal, which is an expression of appreciation from the Korean government to U.S. servicemen and women who served in the Korean Conflict. To be eligible, the veterans must have served in Korea during the war from June 25, 1950, to July 27, 1953.

Families may apply for their deceased service member and have the medal awarded posthumously.

For questions and to obtain the application form, contact Les Higa at (949) 233-6363 or LesHiga@gmail.com, or Consul Junghee Mun at (213) 651-3452 or jhmun22@mofa.go.kr.
