On January 12, 2016, during the Governor’s State of the State Address, we would like to present all Korean War Veterans that served in Korean from June 25, 1950, through October, 25, 1954, with the Korean Government Ambassador Peace Medal to those who have not already received it.
Here’s how we anticipate it will unfold:
Governor Daugaard will recognize all Korean Era Veterans and thank them for their services He will then ask representative from Korean Government to join him at the podium – the Governor will read letter/proclamation from Korean Government and then he and Korean Government officials will place medals on two respective Korean War Veterans. Simultaneously, throughout the state of South Dakota, volunteers will place the medals we have received from the Korean Government on the respective veterans in their communities.
