Scavello and Toomey Partner to Recognize Korean War Veterans
I want to make you aware of the Korean Ambassador for Peace medal which is available to veterans who serviced served in Korea from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. The Medal was created by the Korean Consul General to recognize and thank our veterans for serving in what is often called “the forgotten war.
U.S. Senator Toomey has been able to secure these medals and is asking my office to help Korean War veterans apply for and receive this honor. An eligible veteran must have served in Korea at some time during the Korean War from June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953. Members of the US Navy are eligible if they served aboard a naval vessel that was assigned to Korean waters during the aforementioned timeframe. Veterans who participated in UN peacekeeping efforts in Korea until the end of 1955 are also eligible for this award. Applications for the Peace Medal are available in all of my offices and on my website. We are happy to help any eligible veteran fill out the application and submit it. The deadline for applications is January 10, 2020. Please help us spread the word so that we may honor as many veterans as possible!
