A call is being made in Richmond and across the Lower Mainland for veterans of the Korean War to come forward.
Guy Black is appealing for the veterans to contact him ahead of a group of students from Korea, who are coming over on Jan. 15 to thank them for their service.
The group from Pukyong National University in Busan have been planning their annual commemoration trip for many months and will be here for just a few days.
Black said they would like to “meet the people who brought peace to their country in 1953.”
The students, according to Black, will bring “a unique part of their home…through their performance of traditional Korean dances and songs.
“They have said their message is one of gratitude and everlasting thanks and appreciation for the great hardships endured and countless sacrifices made by our veterans.”
