Korean War Veterans Armistice Day is July 27, and this year marks the 65th anniversary of the end of the Korean War. To celebrate this occasion and honor the Nebraskans who served in Korea, Governor Ricketts will be hosting a special event at the Capitol to honor Korean War Veterans with Ambassador for Peace Medals. 
The medals were created by the Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs in the Republic of Korea to thank American soldiers for their bravery, sacrifice, and courage in the Korean War and as peacekeepers afterwards.
