VA HONORS KOREAN WAR VETERANS
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Northern California Health Care System, Korean-American Chamber of Commerce, Korean H20 Foundation, and South Korean and American dignitaries honored Korean War Veterans who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice with a special ceremony. Children were flown from South Korea to pay tribute to their American friends.
The ceremony began with a welcome from VA Northern California Health Care System Interim Director, David Mastalski, Republic of Korea in San Francisco Consul General, Dongman Han, and President of Korean H20 Foundation, Chang Sup Choi. The tribute included the presentation of colors, laying of the wreaths, and finished with a foot washing ceremony to honor surviving Korean War Veterans. The event brought tears to many Veterans that thought their sacrifices were forgotten.
