Wichita’s American Legion Post No. 4 will honor Korean War veterans during an event Saturday, the 60th anniversary of the signing of the Korean Armistice Agreement.

Doors open at 6 p.m. at the post’s headquarters, 818 N. Water, and the event will start at 6:45 p.m. A dinner of all-you-can eat tacos, re-fried beans, chips and salsa will be available for $5.

The Tornado Alley Young Marines will present the colors and do a tribute to the fallen soldier.

The armistice was signed by representatives of the United Nations, North Korea and China on July 27, 1953, to end the Korean War.

It was designed to “insure a complete cessation of hostilities and of all acts of armed force in Korea until a final peaceful settlement is achieved.” A final settlement has yet to be done.

The armistice also established the Korean demilitarized zone between North and South Korea.
