The Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Atlanta and the Georgia Department of Veterans Service are partnering to say “Thank You” to Korean War Veterans for their honorable military service and personal sacrifice by hosting a special medal and certificate ceremony. This event will involve the presentation of the Republic of Korea’s Ambassador for Peace Medal and Georgia’s Korean War Veteran Certificate of Honor. Every Georgia veteran with honorable service during the Korean War (June 25, 1950 to July 27, 1953) is eligible to receive this certificate and peace medal lapel pin (This includes veterans with service in-country and those who were stationed elsewhere in other capacities). It is also available for veterans who participated in the United Nations Peacekeeping Operations through the end of 1955. The Ambassador for Peace Medal began to be presented to veterans as a special memento for those American veterans who returned to Republic of Korea through the “Revisit Program.” The honor was expanded to veterans who have been unable to participate. The State’s Certificate of Honor is personalized with the Korean War veteran’s name, rank, branch of service, and dates of service printed over the Seal of the State of Georgia and includes the official Korean War logo. These certificates are signed by Governor Brian Kemp and GDVS Commissioner Mike Roby.
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP: Friday, October 11, 2019
