The public is invited to the 2018 Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial Ceremony on Sunday, June 3.

The program begins at 10:45 a.m. at the memorial. Korean War veterans and their families, veterans from all branches of service, and the public are invited to attend. Representatives from the Korean Consulate, Wisconsin National Guard and Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs have been invited to speak at the program.

The Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial pays tribute to Wisconsinites who fought, died, or are still missing as a result of the Korean War. The memorial features a series of larger-than-life bronze statues as its centerpiece, representing various U.S. Armed Forces that took part in the war.

None of the figures carry a weapon, conveying that peace is ardent hope of all veterans.

A Memorial Tiles program has been established for those who wish to honor a loved one who served in the Korean conflict. For more information on ordering tiles please visit the Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial website at www.koreanmemorial.org.

The memorial is located adjacent to the Worzella Pines Park at the junction of I-39 and County Road B in Plover.
